beautiful little gem of a museum

Beautiful collection of Millicent's jewelry collection, and I enjoyed the story of her life and commitment to Taos people. (Nice gift shop too!)

Gorgeous exhibition of Millicent Roger's personal jewelry, Maria Martinez pottery and many beautiful handmade blankets. The collection of rugs and blankets illustrates the evolution Native American weaving. Very nice way to spend a few hours and gain insight into the areas native arts. If you're interested in investing in native pieces this collection shows you exquisite examples of the real... More

Having visited a number of museums here and there, I have to say this is one of my favorites, We make a point to visit every time we go to Taos.

Millicent Rogers was a fascinating person and it was very interesting to read about her life and see the things she collected. She wrote a letter to her children right before she died that was very soulful and touching. Words we can all use!

This museum is a bit out of Taos but is well worth the visit. Ms. Rogers was a wealthy patron of the arts. Her museum has gorgeous silver work, clay painted bowls, weavings, carvings, statuary, and jewelry. If you like museums, this is not one to miss.

Stunning & huge collections of textiles, turquoise jewelry & pottery - plus a special exhibit. But it became numbing after awhile - almost too much to take in. I thought the her-home-turned-museum would be set up with furniture, dishes, etc as she had lived there with the collections displayed through out. Despite going to several whenever we travel, I'm really... More

This museum has a little bit of everything! Beautiful rugs/blankets, pottery especially that by Maria Martinez, gorgeous jewelry worn by Millicent and so much more. It is definitely worth the time to see some of the history from this area!

Native American and Hispanic arts and jewelry and more, much of it from the collections of Millicent Rogers, a real character, granddaughter of a founder of Standard Oil who moved to Taos (after her heart was broken by Clark Gable) and promoted indigenous and modern artists. She befriended Maria Martinez, an important Native American potter, whose works and story are... More

Use the electronic guide to get the best out of this museum built by the sons of a socialite who collected lots of local art and jewelry. The collection has been added to over the years, and this museum gives a lot of great historical information about the work.

A very nice collection of Navajo weavings, Maria Martines pottery, hand-woven baskets, and turquoise and silver jewelry. Her original designed jewelry and her personal collection is massive.
