Hardwood Museum has a great variety of pieces from 1700s to contemporary. I believe is it the biggest gallery in downtown Taos. They have a great collection that really reflects the local history/ art scene. It costs $10 for adults, $7 for students and under 18 is free.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this Museum. There were several exhibitions and most were quite impressive. The Taos Society of Artists was a favorite along with the Hispanic Traditions Exhibit. We spent at least an hour here.

The permanent collection alone is worth a second visit, but the temporary exhibits are always impressive. Leave time for the gift shop as well.

During a recent trip to Taos my wife and I visited the Harwood Museum, and we were both pleased with the museum. The works of art from the old Taos Society of Artist was a real treat to see. I'll be back again for a repeat viewing of these great art works.

Not much here. We breezed through in about 20 minutes and we were taking our time. The Millicent Rogers house on the outskirts of town was much more interesting.

This was the home of the Harwoods close to a 100 years ago. Both were artists and part of the Taos group of artists at that time. The museum has expanded over the years and has some contemporary exhibits as well as works by Taos artists and great wooden sculptures by local Hispanic artists incuding Placito Barelas. There is also... More

We spent an hour or so appreciating the eclectic art collection housed in an old home in Taos. There are many styles of art represented most of which were created by artists who lived and/or worked in Taos at some time in their careers. The art is spread out in small galleries on two floors and displayed on white adobe... More
