This is a definite stop for all artists and architects. The home was designed by the artist, Fechin and combines local construction techniques with Russian and American Prairie details. The art collection is stunning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The gardens are a great place to sit or sketch. The bathrooms are clean.

This is one of the most special art museums that we have ever visited. The emotional story of Fechin's life is very touching. His amazing woodworking skills evident throughout this special house are wonderful. His vibrant paintings on display are spectacular; in particular, I was impressed by Balinese Dancer and every portrait of his daughter Eya. The upstairs room with... More

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
