I'm not a fan of Fechin's paintings, so I did not find this museum worthwhile. That said, his woodcarving in the house is stunning, the moreso because he did it in addition to his painting; I don't know when the man found time to sleep. If you're not familiar with Fechin's paintings, do some research and see what you think.... More

The history of Nicholai Fechin and his totally wood carved house is amazing, and it houses the Taos Art Museum. His paintings are brilliant as well. Time well spent here. Glad we didn't miss it! (And it's free!) Bonus!

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.
