Very old adobe home of Kit Carson. Some interesting items on display and you can tour the few and small rooms of this humble western home, right in the heart of the historic part of Taos and their plaza. I little dusty and tired looking, but the people running it are very nice and dedicated to preserving the history there.

The museum is easy to find located in Taos. They show a short film and it is interesting, but the Museum is small. Cost was $7.00 US dollars.

My partner loves history of the Wild West, so he loved this. Not my passion, so I would be inclined to give three stars instead. The staff was nice; the movie was interesting (Kit Carson's great grandson "acts" as Kit) and informative. It is a very small museum with some interesting photos and artifacts.

Kit lived here, but as a visit it didn't have much to show. Highlight was a history channel video that didn't reference the home or Taos. Watch the video at home and skip the museum.
