The hacienda provides an excellent insight into the living environment of times past. Well preserved and authentic, without the Disneyland treatment.

kinda brings a realization of kind of life 'enjoyed' in the early days. It was a little tricky finding the place but the hunt was well worth the effort.

The family had a huge home for themselves in the front and the "servants" in the back. Each room had plaques describing what it was and how it was used. There were many items of the time period. Pictures are allowed everywhere. A few more signs on where to park and the slaughter area would have been helpful.

This 1804 hacienda really gives one an idea of what life was like during that time period in NM. I thought the buildings were authentically restored and well done.

If you are a history buff, the hacienda is not to be missed. The drive out there is beautiful as you go through a county setting. The hacienda and the displays were so authentic that I felt like I was back in time. The curator did an amazing job! The rooms were not lit, but keep the doors wide open... More

Very historical look at the early settlers of the area. Go at your own pace and you will learn how tough a life the Spaniards had as they set up a life in a strange land.

The hacienda in general is very interesting. The flyer gives a lot of great information about each of the rooms within the hacienda. There were only a few rooms that had the lights on, so it was very difficult to see the furnishings. At the end we asked the gentleman about the lights. At first he said that he forgot... More

This was my first visit and I was charmed and educated. They have a current exhibit (like through about June 2014) of photograph of moradas in the Taos area. They are identified only by the subject, the weather, and the time of day for privacy; but the written notes including quotations from members of the Hermanidad (AKA Los Penitentes), offer... More
