We were encouraged to go to this museum by the staff at the Blumenschein Home & Museum as it's possible to buy a joint ticket at a reduced rate. It was definitely worth the visit to see what life was like in the earliest days of European settlement in Taos.

A visit here gives you an idea of the depth of Taos history. Long before hippies and east coast artists longing to breath free there was Taos. Its a good place to go, after the Pueblo.

Make sure you either have a GPS or good directions because this place can be a little hard to find, but if you get there, it's worth it. This, like the Taos Pueblo, is a must-see for history buffs. It does a great job of depicting how people once lived here. There weren't very many people here the day we... More

if you want to know how the wealthy land owners lived this is a must see. the Hacienda is full of artifacts and religious icons. You really could envision life there. There was also a short history with pictures in one of the larger rooms. It is worth a stop.

The Hacienda was built in the early 1800's and gives you a wonderful view of what life was like at that time for the wealthy ranchers in the area. This is a little off the beaten track, but well worth the short drive from the Plaza. There were only two other people there when I visited, so I could spend... More

This is a good location to learn a bit about the early settlement of this part of the country. The tour is self guided, with a number of placards to explain the uses of the building and how things were done by the early settlers.

This doesn't get a lot of ink, but located a couple of miles from the center of Taos, this former residence/trading fort/compound served as a major commercial center. It has been partially restored but is very rustic. Wear comfortable steps and be prepared for narrow doorways, steps, and tight hallways.

Such a simple hacienda from the outside but so much to explore on the inside. Thick walls and large courtyards for the Martinez family to enjoy year round. Each room has been labeled and decorated in the style of the era.

The hacienda has about 20 rooms and in each you get a feel for life in the 1800's, i.e. blacksmith shop, kitchen, etc. What a hard life it must have been!
