Small but great museum. There are better museums in town if you are short on time. If you are spending 3 days or more this place can be added to you list.

Be sure to visit the Taos Art Museum and plan to spend at least an hour to experience an essential part of New Mexico art and artists. The Museum is located in the home of Nicolai Fechin on the Paseo del Pueblo Norte providing an excellent environment to learn about the early Taos artist community. The Museum is outstanding for...

First the house = lovely with fine architectural details, especially the wood work (carved by Fetchin himself). Nice art = local artists' works on display along with Fetchin's collection. We enjoyed the video about Fetching, his family, and building the house. Wished we could have enjoyed the garden too, but there was snow on the ground.

The reason we travel is to learn new things. I had never heard of Nicolai Fechin, and now I know so much about his life and his skill as a woodcarver. He built their home next to his studio and carved every little detail in the house himself. It was gorgeous! His art was good, not great, but the house... More

I have found that the special exhibits organized by the Fechin are so worth a visit. This time the show was paintings by a woman named Cami Thompson who lives just north of Taos and who does wonderful oils of flowers, nature, animals, etc. I had read of her work in the Taos Magazine during a recent visit and decided...

Anotoli Fechin is one of my favorite artists (many people never heard of him). A Russian who immigrated to the USA in the 20's (I think it was the 20s). He 1st was in NYC, but moved to Taos and built this house and furniture all by himself, by hand, while still painting and sketching! His daughter transferred it to... More

The Fechin house is the best art at this site. The other art while nice is not equal to the beautiful building. Great original design and thoughtful preservation make the Fechin house well worth a visit.

I came for the fall art festival and stumbled across this showplace. What an incredible place to view art, the windows, the rooms the history and light was all amazing!. The artist Cami Thompsen had an opening and her art complimented the upstairs building so well, the other rooms were not as impressive with out the amazing architecture.

The wood details in the home were BEAUTIFUL. The art collection was not very large. The woman at the desk was unfriendly & turned us off to the experience.
