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.

Fechin was a Russian painter but also a sculpter and woodworker. The woodwork in the house is worth seeing. Very nice museum. For $25 you can purchase admission to 5 museums.

We arrived expecting to see more art on display. When we toured there was only works by Fechin. The house is interesting, but it does not take long to wander through a dozen or so rooms and voila! You are finished. There were no docents, or audio tour, so you will have to read the signs ...
