This small museum displays uniques items collected by Ms. Rogers in her years in the area, such as jewelry, Indian beadwork and pottery, traditional clothing, and other artifacts. Also interesting were the photos and letters about her life as the granddaughter of a cofounder of Standard Oil.

We were looking to kill some time inTaos and visited this museum on a lark. Was well worth the time learning about the woman, seeing her collection of Native American jewelry and wardrobe, beadwork, woven textiles, and pottery. The gift shop has a wonderful selection of interesting items for purchase and the location is on a beautiful backroad in Taos.

Millicent Rogers started as a New York socialite. Happily, she finished as a woman who cared deeply for her Taos area culture and surroundings! This is another little jewel of Taos, tucked away so that you driver right past it. But that is the Tasoseno way of doing things, isn't it? Go in, and just wander around, and feel the... More

We visited this museum because my boyfriend was interested in the collection of native American jewelry. This collection took up several rooms and included bracelets, necklaces, rings, bolos and concho belts and also had photos of Ms. Rogers wearing the jewelry. The museum is located in a house in a residential area outside of Taos and not sure if it... More

The museum was very nice since it was once a residence and had some interesting little quirks. I loved the exhibit of Millicent Rogers jewelry and art. There were some very nice pieces of Indian pottery too.

Millicent Rogers was clearly a most savvy collector. Her taste was impeccable. This Museum and all its Galleries is worth an extended visit. Make sure you stop by the shop where the offerings are as tasteful as the collection that's on display in the Galleries. You won't be disappointed.

Ms. Rogers honored the Pueblo Indians, as well as others in the Southwest, without inappropriate intrusion into their cultures and ways of life. This museum continues that honor by presenting the finest in Southwest Indian art and artifacts. If history and art are of interest to you, do not miss it.

The museum holds some beautiful jewelry, clothing, beadwork and furniture. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They can tell you the history of almost every piece in the museum. They also have a great knowledge of the history of Millicent and the area. Easy to find north of Taos. Lots of free parking. $10 fee. Gift shop has local... More

Wow! I was so impressed with the Millicent Rogers Museum. It is a small but beautiful collection of southwestern design -- textiles, pottery, jewelry, traditional silver & turquoise work, sculpture, and a collection of traditional Spanish Catholic religious arts & crafts. as well as rotating exhibits of southwest arts & crafts on loan from other places. It was well worth... More

I'd never heard of her until we found her museum on TripAdvisor. Very interesting history of the pueblo and other Southwest Indian people's. The museum is nicely done and maintained
