The highlight of the museum is the Maria and Julian Martinez pottery display and story. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area that is Taos, this surprising informative museum is a excellent use of 1-2 hours of your day.

This is a good stop for a rainy day!! Easy parking! This museum displayed items collected by this special lady! She was very fashion conscientious. Part of the exhibit was a collection her jewelry. We were told that it was recently added. The display of many Indian art pieces and how they were made was very interesting. This place definitely... More

We had several people both from home and from Taos recommend this site. I would agree. If you want to learn about New Mexican pottery, Indian jewelry, and Millicent Rogers, be sure to go. It is located several miles outside of Taos in a former residence. A highlight is Maria Martinez the noted potter from San Ildefonso. Fascinating. And there... More

This is a little out of the way and like many of the museums in Santa Fe and Taos just a little underwhelming unless you have a real penchant for SW art.

Fascinating to review the life and times of the glamorous Millicent Rogers. Her collection of Indian jewelry and her designs of her own jewelry were fascinating. Also, there were several landscape paintings in oil that were so good they have stayed in my mind.

Probably the largest collection of Indian silver buttons in the country. Huge personal collection all held inside of the home of Millicent Rogers. I am glad to have visited.

An hour drive from Santa Fe is this fabulous museum . The rich collection of all things Native American and the later Mexican settlers is telling an intriguing story about tradition and identity during the years of American evolution. Typically for the area the building itself is a lovely home for the artistry that was left by the ancestors of... More

This is the most comprehensive collection you'll find in the northern NM area. The museum is laid out in a very organized manner with excellent examples of weavings, pottery, jewelry, paintings and contemporary Native American work.

One of many women who made their way to the Southwest and left an indelible mark. You are cheating yourself out of a wonderful learning experience if you don't visit this museum.
