This was the actual home of artist Blumenschein and his wife and daughter. There is art by both husband and wife with original furniture as well. Allow about 45 mins. to go through.

The Blumenschein family was important in the early Taos artist movement and the family's work is interesting but not as notable as many other artists of the period. The house is furnished as it was in the 1930s and 40s but has a worn feel that might be enduring if it weren't a bit sad.

This is quite a large house spread over one floor, right next to the Harwood Museum. The rooms are filled with interesting old furniture from a time gone by, with information about the artist family who owned the home and their art collection. I enjoyed my visit of around an hour. They have a small bookshop/gift shop. There is a... More

I was just walking around town and I happened upon this place. The family were all artists and they developed their house by buying the neighbors's places and connecting the homes, so it is quite a large adobe house with many of their original furnishings and, of course, their art.

We visited the Blumenshein Home while recently visiting the Taos area. Thoroughly enjoyed touring this home and all the artwork displays throughout. I highly recommend a visit.

My husband and I enjoyed this museum. We love old buildings with all their charm and quirks. It doesn't take long to go through the rooms. The paintings and photographs are good and the home reflects how houses can go through many changes. Enjoyable but once is enough.

The home is maintained in a way that gives the feeling that the Blumenscheins have just left. Fascinating how they acquired additional rooms as they became available so the house has taken on a quirky shape. A quiet backwater, well worth seeking out

A well preserved home of an artist, this gives an idea of what it was like to live in Taos long ago. While not impressed by the art, the history of the place was interesting.

This is probably not the best place to see Blumenschein's works, but it is a good place to see how artists lived when they first started coming to Taos. The staff are also exceedingly friendly and helpful.
