The home provides a great picture of how life must have been like for the Blumenscheins during the early 20th Century. The art collection includes both work by the husband and wife, plus special collections. Well worth a visit.

This home and museum was very worthwhile seeing. I am so glad we visited! Completely furnished in the way it looked when the Blumenschein's lived there. I love his paintings too!

Unfriendly front receptionist. Very little BLUMENSCHEIN art--was expecting more. Some nice vintage illustrations from his wife.

We were first attracted to the building by lilacs and its courtyard of flowers. Inside you'll find a fine collection of art and other objects to view. Easy to find not far from the central Taos Plaza.

A very nice house nicely maintained containing the art of a very talented family. The daughter's room is charming with all the walls decorated by the mother.

Impressive display of the home and art of an impressive man, Ernest L. Blumenschein who was much more than an internationally recognized artist.

This is a small home with art work, biography, and period furnishings. Nice if you have the time, but not a must see in my opinion, unless you are particularly interested in the Blumenscheins.

Quite a big place cost quite a bit to get in and we went 45 minutes before it closed. The lady at the desk greeted us with "2 seniors?". The place was very dark in some of the rooms and quite light in others. It was interesting the gift shop was small and the grounds would have been better in... More

Very interesting museum. The private residence/ studio of the esteemed Taos artist, Blumenschein and an intimate look at his family life and the way they lived.
