Very much worth the visit. Stunning architecture and attention to detail in this beautiful home. Skip the mediocre gift shop, however.

We decided to visit the Fechin House museum, and I am very glad that we did. The admission was a bit pricey at $10 per adult, but the house is a living museum to the life of Nicolai Fechin and members of the Taos Society of Artists. An artist by day, Nicolai Fechin spent his evenings carving the woodwork in... More

We were so amazed at the incredible work that Fechin did in the 6 years he was in Taos. His woodworking expertise was incredible. The house was very forward thinking with large windows and large rooms. We spent 2 hours in his house and next door in his studio. We were fascinated by his story.

The house itself is worth the visit, very interesting structure. Make sure to watch the video so you can learn about the original owner and builder. The art spread around the house is great for appreciating the old way of life in Taos.

The Fechin House is a worthy art museum in the making, with a small collection of paintings for view at this time. It promises to be a prominent museum of Southwest art, as the collection expands and the displays are developed throughout the Fechin home. As of May 2015, it is more of a home, built by a Russian artist... More

This museum is housed in the house built by one of the "historic" artists of the area -- and it is worth the walk through the building just to admire the amazing wood carving incorporated into the building. Everything from the lintels to the wood doors is decorated with wonderful carving -- mostly done by Fechin himself. The art collection... More

A wonderful relaxing little place, Russian artist Fechin's home turned into a museum: -fee -nearby free parking -in town -fabulous styling of the home and an abundance of super wood carvings done by the artist: cabinets, doorways, columns, etc. -paintings by Fechin, one of my favorite artists. I would have rated this place higher but there were SO few of... More

The small, intimate museum gives one the opportunity to step into the world of one of Taos' most renowned artists. The paintings are very good, but what stands out is the hand carved woodwork throughout the home and the warm, creative atmosphere it creates . I walked out inspired by the work he created for his own home.

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.
