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

This was a great introduction to a founder of the Taos art colony. The knowledgeable volunteer on duty, Phyllis Nichols, told us the story of Blumenschein, his wife, and daughter, all of whom were artists. She explained what we would see and how Blumenschein expanded the house. We enjoyed going through the house, seeing the works on display, and looking... More

We walked the two blocks from the plaza in Taos to this site. The house is low ceilinged, it is very quiet, with only a couple of other people there with us. Since given to Taos in 1962, it has all the family furniture and a good brochure on the history of the building with the family of painters as... More

The art itself is a bit lacking with most of his great pieces in various museums, but there were 4 or 5 really fine paintings...and the home itself is a charmer...NO AC....but quite comfortable and worth seeing.

We didn't expect this house/museum to be quite as impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed going through the rooms and seeing furniture, appliances and art from the early 20th century. The docent was incredible!! We didn't get her name but she was so enthusiastic and knowledgable that we think she should be paid!! Wonderful visit! Another example of the Taos Society of... More

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.
