We wanted to see the Fred Harvey exhibit before it closes on January 31, 2015. The exhibit included many items from both Fred Harvey's personal estate and from the company that bore his name. The story of how his vision for a string of restaurants and hotels along the railroad from Kansas City, through New Mexico, to California is described... More

This is a wonderful treasure of a museum. The silver and turquoise jewelry owned by Ms. Rogers is truly amazing. The work is outstanding. One of the other amazing exhibits is the collection of religious art. I loved seeing the work of Maria Martinez, an outstanding and gifted potter whose work is sought-after and beautiful.

The Millicent Rogers Museum has many rooms that display local Pueblo and Navajo art. The mediums are Watercolour, oil, pastel, textiles, clay, stone, silver, etc. so paintings to rugs to pottery to jewelry, and facts to go with most pieces. This museum is a favorite for many, me included.

Millicent Rogers collected a lot of indigenous art. Her collection is amazing, and of course worth the time to peruse the museum. She wrote a letter to her children that is displayed towards the end of the museum just before the museum shop. You may enjoy reading it. She was really quite a woman.

This is a really unique museum that showcases art native to the New Mexico area. Millicent Rogers lived in New Mexico during the latter part of her life and collected and designed silver/turquoise jewelry. It's truly a priceless collection! That's only part of the experience, lot's of other native art experiences here, as well as rooms dedicated to the Sante... More

My wife loved this museum but I have to say I didn't see anything in this museum that I also didnt see for sale in area shops. I wouldn't add this to your travel lost unless you have tons of time.
