A little off the main road but only a 5 minute drive. This place was very well preserved and very well displayed. All the rooms had good explanations and artifacts all dating from the early 19th century. It was a fabulous display of old NM life! There was a lot to learn and see here. Its worth the short drive...

The hacienda is as it was in the 19th century which gives a good perspective of the was life was during that time. The lady who greeted us gave us a good overview also.

This is a little out of the way, but worth the time it takes to get there. We learned a lot about the Mexican side of history in the Taos area. It is a beautiful place and well kept. It was one of our favorite spots to visit while in Taos. Highly recommend if you want to see the Mexican... More

We stopped at the outside of the Hacienda on our wonderful Trolley Tour. Dave, our guide suggested that we go back to visit. We were not disappointed. The self-directed tour is excellent. Each room is numbered and a corresponding notation on the handout provided described in detail the artifacts and purpose of each room. Additional information was also provided. During... More

The exhibits within the structure have been improved and illustrate Spanish colonial life very nicely.

This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. I believe it was the first home in Taos, but if not, certainly one of the oldest structures there. Enjoyed seeing how they lived.

It is not hard.to imagine a small community using this home. Obviously larger than the normal 1-3 room homes of the locals, this is a much larger 21 room home built by a prosperous business man in 1804. On display, the cooking area, leather working (saddles), quilt making (active group making and selling their work), and many other small displays.... More

Don't be turned away by the outside appearance of this site. It is a 10 minute drive from the Plaza but worth the effort to get to it!! It is LAYED out with many little rooms that describe the early development of the area. Many artifacts that transition this eara!

to learn about the history of Taos and of the people who lived there a long time ago. Visit of the hacienda, of many rooms and the 2 patios. Interesting but not essential if you go to visit Taos.
