Visited this museum which was on road in front of our condo. Interesting to see how the artist worked to restore and rebuild this structure as his home after spending time in his art studio. Museum is in the center of much of the Taos activities and is a nice visit. We used it to see when it was raining... More

Partly for visiting Fechin house and how he made it, know about his life and see his paintings exposed all around the house.

The house was wonderfully beautiful. So much so that our school-aged kids were intrigued. The art was lovely. Our children were given a scavenger hunt and they loved that. Worth stopping by--small place but an important part of area history.

While the art in very interesting, the work of Nicolai Fechin in building rather than just painting is well worth seeing. The various styles of architecture are worth seeing.

Like other reviewers, I found the Fechin House itself as interesting--perhaps more so--than the art hanging on the walls. Fechin spent his days painting and his nights hand-carving every door, window frame, piece of furniture, and built-in cabinetry. It's a very impressive accomplishment. I also enjoyed seeing the huge sky-lit studio in back and imagining the artist at work. I... More

I visited the Fechin House because I like the artist, but if you don't know his work, you can still appreciate the beautiful adobe house and the painstaking wood carving he did on the interior: doors, pieces of furniture, etc. Some of Fechin's paintings are displayed upstairs; there are temporary shows of other artists' on the first floor. To finish... More

The former home of the artist Nicolai Fechin, the Taos Art Museum showcases the work of Fechin and others. Woodwork and furniture are carved by Fechin, and his studio is adjacent to the home. During the last visit there, Fechin's paintings were on display on the second floor and there was an exhibit by J. Charles Berninghaus on the first... More

The house itself is special, as are the Fechin paintings upstairs. The particular exhibit we viewed was not as fine as the art available in galleries around town so that was a bit of a disappointment. The people were nice and the film in the giftsop a real plus.. Had I to choose, I would prefer both the Harwood and... More

Learn how emigre Fechin left revolutionary Russia in the 1920's and settled in Taos, building a beautiful home with hand carved elements and graceful living spaces. Then appreciate the art on permanent exhibition as well as visiting exhibitions. A art museum? A lovely example of SW living? Both? Yes!
