We were delighted to spend an hour or so at the Harwood Museum, immersing ourselves in the current exhibition (Mabel Dodge Luhan). Stunningly well done! And, the architecture of the museum is lovely to boot.

The docent was knowledgable and her conversational approach fit right into Taos style. Great art work including pieces by Ufer, Phillips and Couse portraying the Taos six and others including O'keefe and Native American artists. Her history was portrayed in deference to her role in Taos as an advocate for local art and sponsor of writers and artists. While attempting... More

Wonderful exhibition featuring the collection of Mabel Dodge Luhan, plus pieces from many other museums! Photographs by Ansel Adams and Weston, Georgia O'Keeffe paintings, and many American, European, and Native American artists. The museum itself is an old hacienda in the center of Taos. There are parts of the old building exposed. There was a wonderful film about the Taos... More

A definite must for all visitors to Taos and repeat as needed. Extensive collection of art and furniture dedicated to the history of the area's artists. Friendly staff and a fun gift store.

Ms. Dodge Luhan was an integral figure in the development of Taos' art scene. The Harwood's exhibit was a great exposition of her surprisingly eclectic life and her huge influence on the period. There were very many interesting pieces either that she was the subject of, that she befriended the artist or that she collected. One of the best biographical... More

I have seen several exhibits at this museum during the last two years and they have both been terrific. I learned a lot about Mabel Dodge Lujan's contribution to Taos. I thought I already knew a lot, but learned even more. The gift shop is small, but has many interesting things to buy.

This little museum has depth and dimension. We visited so that we could better understand the legacy of Mabel Dodge Luhan and the many artists, writers, and thinkers she brought to the Taos area 100 years ago. It was really a wonderful portrayal of her influence on the art scene.

The current special exhibition (I think until Sept) on Mabel Dodge Luhan and all the Taos School artists (O'Keeffe, Ansel Adams, etc, etc) is extremely well done and very informative. The art is first class and shows how important she and Taos were to the development of SW art and the appreciation of Pueblo artists. Well worth a visit.
