The hacienda is a 21-room complex built around two courtyards that was a home to the Martinez family and its servants as well as housing the family business. Furnishing is sparse, but there are informative displays on weaving, blacksmithing, and leather work. When we visited, there was also a display of quilts by local artists. The hacienda provides good insights... More

Nice little place, a couple of miles out of town. I think the term that best describes this place is "under curated." You stumble through a series of dimmly lit rooms and some have interesting pictures with few notations, and others are just a jumble of similar items. A bit of 'figure it out for yourself, cowboy.'

We've been here before and enjoy it. There are usually very few people here, so it's easier to get into imagining being an early Spanish settler living here than if it were full of tourists. If you are a history buff, you will enjoy it, but if not, you may feel there isn't much to see.

Thoroughly enjoyed touring Hacienda de los Martinez. Over 20 rooms packed with artifacts of the 1800s southwest and explanations beside them. Be sure to go into all the rooms in the front and back courtyard as I missed the Santos Display Room. If you have time, enjoy the front and back yards too.

This was one of the places I wanted to see while in Taos. Cost is $8 for adults. There are discounts for students, seniors, and Taos county residents. This is definitely an off- the-beaten path attraction. I kept thinking "where is my gps taking me" as I'm driving through residential streets but then the sign appears out of nowhere. The... More

The Hacienda is a great example of how to preserve an historic building and turn it into an excellent place for everyone to learn in.

In an out of the way location, and easily missed, but make sure you go if you want to imagine what life was like 300 years ago in Taos. Rooms are set up thematically to view at yor leisure. A bit dusty and tired, but complete and enjoyable. Very cool in th adobe rooms, even though outside temp was over... More

Interesting look into New Mexico's colonial past. Well worth the visit! A little hard to find, but very near the famous church at Ranchos de Taos, so it is easy to combine the excursion and see both.

Nice place to spend an hour or two seeing what life was like in the area two hundred years ago. The museum is also very interesting and well laid out. The small stream that runs by the place is also nice for a picnic.
