I had never been here and truly enjoyed the experience. The museum is in an older home, and quite lovely. The collection is very extensive and so incredibly interesting. Millicent Rodgers was quite a dame, that's for sure, and boy, did she know what to collect. Her jewelry collection was incredible. Actually, everything was fascinating. Can't wait to return!

Love this museum. I enjoy seeing over and over again Ms. Rogers beautiful collection of turquoise jewelry. This is a permanent exhibit. The changing exhibits are always interesting too.

The MRM has some of the finest examples of Maria Martinez pottery that one can find anywhere, as well as works by Margaret Tafoya. I hesitate to speak of the Navajo rugs, because I do not know much about this particular craft--but I know a lot more than I did before our most recent visit. Unlike so many other museums,... More

Saw this museum on trip advisorand decoded to make a quick detour to visit. So very glad I did. Interesting and eclectic collection assembled by socialite Millicent Rogers to celebrate her love of fashion, art and the southwest. Would love to visit again if I'm in the area.

This museum of Southwestern Indian Art is a fantastic display and education of the subject. Millicent Rogers was yet another eccentric, wealthy person living in what must have been a VERY quiet New Mexico in the 40's and 50's (there but for the sake of wealthy would I be). The art is beautiful and the displays informative, even if the... More

Although the museum covers more, it concentrates on Ms Rogers life and collecting in the Taos area. The museum has avery nice collection and explanation of southwest us tribal pottery---plus other collections. it's a good way to spend 2 hours.

I am so glad my son and I spent time at this museum during our recent Christmas trip. Millicent Rogers was quite the woman . . . society maven, art and turquoise jewelry collector, designer. I loved the way the galleries were arranged, and the accompanying descriptions and brochures were well done. My favorite exhibition was her extensive collection of... More

Visited this collection on our way to Taos pueblo and were blown away by the collection and biography of Millicent Rogers. Great history of her family and her passion for the arts and the South West. Out of the way but so worth the trip if you like small intimated museums.

We spent almost 2 hrs here and loved every minute of it. Pottery, jewelry, religious carvings and more all related to the west. The house is also worth seeing and the gardens look amazing. 12 rooms filled with exceptional work from the west.

The drive north of Taos is well worth doing in its own right, and a stopover to see this collection (and to learn more about the woman behind it) makes it better still.
