It also has an interesting collection of folk art from the colonial period. There is a gallery devoted to paintings by Agnes Martin, who lived in New Mexico toward the end of her life, which is...

We were unfamiliar with the exquisite art produced and being produced in the Taos area prior to this visit. This is a very nicely curated space. I would recommend it to any traveler.

There was a free concert the day we attended. Beautiful art museum in the heart of downtown Taos. Very friendly staff and accommodating for disabled. Sweet little gift shop and when I asked for a tote bag, the saleswoman went in the back and found 2 different kinds to choose from for my souvenir.

Lots of very interesting art for our entire family. Even our 10 year old son enjoyed looking at all of the amazing art. Only $20 for our family of 4 :)

We did not really know what to expect of this museum. Entrance is $10 unless you have an exemption, which on trust they gave us. There was a special exhibit on the Taos Artist 10 group and it was fantastic, spread over a couple of rooms of prints and oils. The entire museum has 7 rooms, but it was well... More

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.
