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.

An interesting museum with much period and local detail. The architecture of the house is fascinating along with the information about Taos during that time. A memorable place.

The history of this museum has always fascinated me. Prominent artists came to Taos and started off with a small residence that they enlarged as their neighbor's properties became available.

The home was enlarged by engulfing other properties--made for a very long home. There were original furnishings and paintings. Parking is awful. Park in front of the Harwood and walk the short distance to the home.

The Blumenscheins, both artists, bought a few rooms in this sprawling ancient adobe house in 1919 and over the years bought additional rooms and sections. You can tour the home to see how they lived and worked. There are many examples of their art work as well as their daughter who continued to live in the house after they died.... More

This house with its period kitchen, bedrooms, etc. provides a good look into life of well-to-do folks in the mid-20th. A nice tour.

This home was owned by artists who were instrumental in Taos becoming what it is today. The displays are interesting regarding art as well as daily life.
