We went with no particular expectations and loved everything about this place. The house, built by Russian artist Fechin, is completely intact and features his carving and woodwork on nearly every surface. His art work is accomplished but it’s the woodwork where he really shines....More

We were not familiar with Nicolai Fechin but we really enjoyed visiting his home. He was an amazing artist and his hand carved interior woodworking is extremely impressive. The gallery also features a few other artists, and is a beautiful display. Two thumbs up!!

The museum is set back off the street and easy to miss. Follow the blue lines to the entrance. Fechin's studio behind the house has several interactive projects for you and the kids and a very interesting video on the 1920's in Taos. The woodwork...More

The museum focuses on the paintings of Nicolai Fechin and other local artists. The setting is perfect - the house is as interesting as the artwork.. Fechin designed and built it himself in the late 1920's, detailing it with hand carved woodwork. You can also...More

The Museum is housed in the home that Nicolai Fechin built and lived in. He is known as one of the most important portrait painters of the 20th Century but was also an amazing wood carver as is evidenced in the home in just about...More
