A good portion of the museum was closed to mount a new exhibit when we visited, so we appreciated being offered a reduced admission fee. The museum has a good collection of Taos artists and is definitely worth a visit.

It is a good small museum. You get a good picture of the Taos community of artists from the last century.

Small and well done, great assortment of local art but of a fine quality and hung very well. Excellent array of different types of art. You will go away learning a lot about the NM life.

The history of significant artists of Taos is displayed in this museum. Spend a little or a lot of time, either way you will learn a lot and see some amazing art.

We were unfamiliar with the exquisite art produced and being produced in the Taos area prior to this visit. This is a very nicely curated space. I would recommend it to any traveler.

There was a free concert the day we attended. Beautiful art museum in the heart of downtown Taos. Very friendly staff and accommodating for disabled. Sweet little gift shop and when I asked for a tote bag, the saleswoman went in the back and found 2 different kinds to choose from for my souvenir.
