This is the home and museum of Ernest & Mary Greene Blumenschein, one of the founders of the Taos Art movement. The tour guide had some great stories of this lovely couple who traveled extensively with their tennis playing daughter in the US and Europe. The home is filled with period furniture and their art along with family photos.

Great small museum with very enthused staff. We got the senior citizen rate of $7 and enjoyed looking through the interesting old Adobe building.

I enjoyed seeing how one of the original Taos artist lived by touring his home. There was a special exhibit to see other early Taos artists paintings in the home. Mrs. Blumenschien's paintings and her painted furniture can also be viewed in the house. The lady at the entrance was so nice and has lived in Taos all her life.... More

Visiting homes of well-known writers, collectors, or other folks of interest can be a fascinating glimpse into the lives of inspiring and inspired people. Artifacts and collectibles adorn each room (even the kitchen) as you imagine how the Blumenschein family and friends entertained themselves during a pivotal time in art colony in Taos. You'll find yourself wondering how the house... More

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 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.

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.
