While living in Taos as a kid, we lived next door to the Fechin House, and all I could do was peer through the fence and wonder what the house was like. Upon the death of his ex-wife, Alexandria, the home was turned into a museum of Nicholi's work. The first time stepping into the house, you don;t know what... More

It is difficult to say which is more impressive, Fechin's stunningly masterful art or the amazing hand carved woodwork and house. This is one of my favorite museums anywhere.

Amazingly, this place is not listed at all in the AAA Tour Book for New Mexico. We found it on TripAdvisor and very glad we did. This is a very accessible house of an artist in Taos with interesting history, some lovely art, and loads of physical character. It doesn't take long to see, but is inspiring in its beauty.... More

this artist was one of the founding artistS of the Taos art colony. The museum is in his home and is not only filled with his artwork - drawings and paintings, but also with his wood carving. The whole ambience is amazing.

This place is amazing. The collection is wonderful, but the house itself is a work of art. This is a must see for art and architecture lovers.

If you are not familiar with the art of Nicholas Fechin, you need to be! Before immigrating to Taos, NM, Fechin was already known as the Russian Michaelangelo. His paintings are awe inspiring and his woodwork in his home, now the museum is equally impressive. Do not miss this experience.

This lovely museum in "downtown" Taos has not only a fabulous collection of iconic Taos artists but is housed in the wonderful Fechin House, home of Russian artist--a significant and beaultiful structure. Lots of opportunities to view the collection, special exhibits and special events as well as enjoying the lovely grounds and gardens.

Here is a house that is filled with paintings of people and places of and around Taos, and a little Russian flair as Fechin was of Russian decent. His father had been a master wood carver. So when Fechin came to Taos to paint, then choose to settle there he cared the woodwork in his home. It is beautiful. It... More

Dont forget to see the studio attached to the gift shop. If you can go on... More

A wonderful small collection that gives you a good sense of the history of Taos's art colony status. The house itself is a work of art in the classic adobe style. Check it out.
