We had no idea there was so much to see and learn about at the Hacienda Martinez. We drove out of Taos and spent two hours walking through the ranch house and reading about the history of this family.

There were only a couple of people there when we went. Well set up museum with lots of artifacts. Many rooms to look at as well as the stable type building and kiln outside. They do have a small gift shop and also restrooms.

Impressive old hacienda - an adobe homestead -which is divided into about twenty rooms all with a theme, such as religious icons and dolls, weaving etc. These all belonged to the fairly rich, trading family who lived here in the early 19th century
