Interesting architecture. Historical looms and religious artifacts. Self guided tour. The buildings surrounding the courtyard contain numerous artifacts.

If you are in to historic sites this is the place for you. A really cool place and extremely interesting. We really learned a lot and the exhibits were very good.

The Hacienda gives you a sense of just what it was like to live in Taos a couple of hundred years ago. "Isolated", in a word. Taos was at that time so far along the supply road that even wealthy residents lived with mostly homemade and homespun goods. Almost everything was made of wood, wool and leather.

21 room hacienda with about 15 rooms open to the public. Educational and glad we spent an hour (maybe a little less) visiting. Friendly staff. Self-guided. Modest cost.

As a history buff and a love for homes this was a great stop. You learn so much how individuals lived back in the early 1800's. We had the whole place to ourselves which gave us plenty of time to check each room out.

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.

I love this place I am a little biased however because my great grandmother lived here for a few years of her life as it was her families hacienda. I love all of the artifacts that they have in this place Each room has something different and you can view what it was like to live in a hacienda like... More
