About
The Taos Art Museum is housed in the home and studio that renowned Russian artist Nicolai Fechin built for his family between 1927 and 1933. The house and studio are masterpieces, blending Fechin’s artistic sensibilities and architectural skills with Russian design elements and Southwestern adobe construction and style. There is nothing else like it in the world. The woodworking in the home, all done by Fechin, is alone worth the visit. The museum’s permanent collection features Fechin’s works as well as paintings by members of the Taos Society of Artists and Taos Moderns

We highly recommend this museum.

The Architecture is The Thing
May 2019
A beautiful home now a museum. The interior woodwork by Fechin is fabulous along with the furniture. Some elements were very modern in the 1930s reconstruction.

Icing on the cake was the Majorie Eaton Exhibit showing at the time we visited.It included paintings, drawings and photographs.

Don't forget to visit the artists studio behind the building, which is active and has artwork for sale.

Don't miss the place!

What a treasure this museum is! While we were there they had an exhibit of an artist we'd never encountered, Marjorie Eaton. Stunning! The work of Fechin curated within his home is amazing. The detail of his woodworking alone is reason enough to visit.

Incredible

The art is stunning. Special exhibits are a treat but the art of Fechin is supreme. The carvings in the woodwork are worth the price of admission alone.

The building of the museum is as interesting as the collection. Beautifully designed and built by the renowned artist Nicolai Fechin. Check out the kitchen as well!

A beautiful house full of wonderful art
Aug 2019
The Taos Art Museum once the home of Nikolai Fechin, his wife Aexandra and daughter Eya is an architectural gem. My wife and I visit it every year during our few weeks in New Mexico.The house with it's southwestern style offers exactly the right atmosphere for the many regional paintings it hosts. We are great admirers of the works of Nikolai Fechin. It is always touching to visit the grave of Alexandra located behind the house in a yard where you can sit and enjoy the local critters who seem to be there every day. Also in back of the museum is a building housing Fechin's studio. It is used in late summer to host the many pieces of fine art that are auctioned off to help fund the museum. A gift shop occupies the front part of that building. We would recommend a visit to the museum for anyone visiting Taos. Sit down anywhere in the house or garden and enjoy the stillness.

Great museum
Sep 2019
This is an art gallery featuring artists that I have previously not been aware of. They are located in a beautiful home of one of the artists. We visited the studio and store as well. The paintings of Marjorie Eaton chronicled her life in Taos and the surrounding area, including the pueblo. Nicholas Fechin did a wonderful job of building the perfect house for the location. Very Southwestern. The staff was helpful in explaining the house and the artwork. Highly recommended.

The art museum/Fincher house was much more than expected. The house is absolutely a work of art itself! Wood work/architecture was awesome. Definitely a must see

This is a wonderful gallery to visit. Many nationally known artists are also shown. The staff is wonderful, no rushing, no fussing. You can take as many pictures as you like. It is a very enjoyable experience.

Really about the house
Sep 2019
I would concur with some of the previous reviewers that a visit here is really more about the house than the art it contains. Nicholas Fechin did a BEAUTIFUL job of decorating this home with his spectacular woodcarving on the doors, door frames, window frames, beams, posts, and furniture in this home. There was a rather intriguing exhibit on the work of Marjorie Eaton on display while we visited - interesting but not spectacular. The Museum Shop in a separate building is very nice and has some nice items for sale - Fechin's old studio is behind it with a few interesting works of art.
