This home and museum is maintained like it was when the artist lived here. It was fascinating to hear how it was cobbled together from several homes. It is self tour but the signage is very enlightening.

Blumenscheins were an incredibly talented family. The house gave an idea of how life used to be. We really enjoyed it.

One feels the very atmosphere, the stillness, present in the home those many decades ago as though it's enveloped in a permanent siesta.

We love his work and as one of the founders of the "Taos School" someone interested in the genre should see where he lived and painted. Both his wife and daughter was also very accomplished artists. Guess we spent an hour plus there and loved...More

Sort of interesting. When Blumenschein and wife came to Taos, they bought rooms in this pueblo. Sounds strange.

Yet another Rough Guide recommendation. Much restored house of the co-founder of the Taos Society of Artists and in some respects, the house is better than the actual art on display. Well worth a visit!
