The aspect of Blumenschein's home is interesting, but I came to see his works. Instead the vast majority of works on display are by his wife and family and not himself. There are only two or three works of his and none of his better work. I was disappointed. The house and furnishings are interesting but it is not worth... More

This was interesting to have a wander through. No photos allowed and watch your head as you walk between the rooms. OK but not a favourite.

This place was not the easiest to find but was worth the effort. It is on a lovely, historic street and feels like stepping back in time. The home is as it was when the family of artists lived there and includes much of their artwork and other work they collected. It is a good sized, one level home that... More

This might be something you want to see if you are interested in the group of artists that "discovered" Taos in the early 1900's. The price seems a mite high for the few rooms filled with a motley assortment of inexpensive early 20th cent furnishings and many examples of the Blumenscheins' daughter's rather mediocre works.

Very wonderful display of late 19th to mid 20th century artwork amidst The Blumenschein home in Taos off Ledoux street. It was wonderful to see what the family did and what happened during their life in Taos. The house was really a great display of dozens of paintings, drawings, and examples of how they used the home. Their personal belongings... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Blumenschein Home and Museum. The volunteer working was so friendly and knowledgeable. The home gives you a great feel for how the first artists settling in the community lived. I hope they are still having the Painters of Light exhibit when you visit.

See the home as it was when the artists lived there. Get a feel for how they lived. Good collection of their art and artifacts. Great orientation by the hostess.

Nice little museum that tells a lot about the family of one of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists. The information about Blumenschein's wife and daughter are just as interesting as that about E.L. Blumenschein himself When we went they had an exhibit of some of the lesser known works of the Taos Society members, as well as... More
