My husband and I very much enjoyed the art exhibit, but the real show is the house. Nicholas Fechin built this house. Take the time to read and learn about its history and what it took to build the house at the time it was built. And don't miss the studio out back.

I visited here on Sunday morning, July 25, 2010. The full name of the museum is actually Taos Art Museum and Fechin House.

They have a really nice art collection that I quite enjoyed. On the basis of the art collection, I’d say this is pretty close to being a “must see” and I do recommend it. But wait. There’s more. This art collection is set in the historic Fechin House, built by Nicholai Fechin between 1927 and 1933. The house itself is a work of art with all the carved details in moldings, doors and furniture that Fechin did. I think that the house along with the art collection vaults this onto the Taos “Must See” list. My second favorite museum in Taos of the seven I visited.

(This is one of 5 museums that is part of the Museum Association of Taos. It cost’s $40 to see each of them separately, but available at each museum is a $25 pass that covers them all. With this pass you have 1 year to make a single visit to each museum.)

This is a small art museum with quality paintings by painters connected to the Taos Society of Artists in the early 20th Century.At this cozy art museum,I saw fine paintings by Ernest Blumenschein("Taos Landscape"),Oscar Berninghaus,E.Martin Hennings,Walter Ufer,William Henderson,Leon Gaspard,and of course,Nicolai Fechin("Balinese Dancer").I also saw fine later paintings by Robert Daughters("Ben Couse"),Ilya McAfee,and Andrew Dasburg.The paintings in this art museum emphasized the New Mexico experience and the majesty of this part of the United States.A few weeks ago,I enjoyed this art museum on a hot Taos day.
