An interesting museum with much period and local detail. The architecture of the house is fascinating along with the information about Taos during that time. A memorable place.
The history of this museum has always fascinated me. Prominent artists came to Taos and started off with a small residence that they enlarged as their neighbor's properties became available. The original furnishings, some decorated by the artists and their daughter, make it feel like one has stepped back in time and that the hosts might appear at any moment.... More
The home was enlarged by engulfing other properties--made for a very long home. There were original furnishings and paintings. Parking is awful. Park in front of the Harwood and walk the short distance to the home.
The Blumenscheins, both artists, bought a few rooms in this sprawling ancient adobe house in 1919 and over the years bought additional rooms and sections. You can tour the home to see how they lived and worked. There are many examples of their art work as well as their daughter who continued to live in the house after they died.... More
This was one of our first stops for this trip to Taos. We had read about the Home & Museum, but had not had time to actually go through it before. It was a visit to a beautiful home that highlighted a unique family.
Been to this house/museum several times. Home of the Blumenschein family - early Taos artists who were influential in creating Taos as an art colony. Really nice sense of early 20th century Taos life. All original furnishings.
We really enjoyed this museum - richly furnished with period furniture and art of this couple; insights into the history of Taos and the art community that lived here. We read nearly every interpretive sign to follow the lives and artistic development of these two artists. Fun and educational.
