This is the old home of one of the most famous Taos artists. There's only 4 Blumenschien paintings, more done by his wife and daughter. The house alone is interesting.

An interesting home and story of how the home came together through the acquisition of pieces and parts and how the Blumenscheins would remodel and try to make it fit into the rambling structure they called home. I felt a little like I was browsing an estate sale but nothing was on sale.

This is more about the lives and talents of this family than a standard art museum. There is art and this is the place to come to understand and glimpse what a phenomenal and multi talented group of people the Taos artists were and what the New Mexico environment was like at the time-wish I could have been there!

While the art is great, I found myself more intrigued by the carvings and the house itself. He was a master craftsman.

We love museums, so it is hard to give a bad review to a museum, but we have to be honest. This was a disappointment. The house itself is dank and dark. The artwork is so-so. We cannot recommend this museum. Sorry!

My wife had been here before and was disappointed due to some items no longer shown but over all it was very nice and enjoyable. If you are a "art person" you'll enjoy your visit.

Expected more Early Taos artist art to be on display. House was interesting. More impressed with 2013 visit. After studying more about the Taos Colony, returned this summer for a more in depth second visit and found less of the art than expected.

The house, beautifully restored and furnished, displays a nice cross section of art by Ernest Blumenschein, his wife Mary Greene and daughter Helen, as well as other Taos artists, along with background information on the Taos artists school. The descriptive information was well done, a good thing since the docent when we visited just sat outside, and couldn't answer the... More

Visiting this museum/home gives one a good insight to what life was like in Taos when it was settled in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Blumenschein was one of the most important of the Taos School of Artists and you can see some of his paintings and those of his comrades inside this sprawling house that seems to go... More
