This was an interesting place but when compared to the Taos Art Museum and several of the local galleries it didn't come close in our opinion. It was pricy $36.00 for 2 seniors and what we saw was not exceptional. Some of the works were...More

I love this museum. The second floor has sacred and secular art of the Southwest, and the first has an entire room filled with large canvases by the great Agnes Martin. Everything is white, and you feel as though you've entered some other luminous plane...More

If you have an interest in the many 20th Century artists that have made Taos their home, then a visit to the Harwood Museum is essential. This is the most extensive museum for paintings in Taos and a real joy to visit. One of my...More

This is just one couple's opinion, bu we were very disappointed in what the Harwood had to offer, art-wise, this past Sunday. For us, there was an over-abundance of Modern art displays and not nearly enough of everything else. If you're looking for wonderful New...More

During our recent early Nov visit, the Harwood displayed more than 20 Taos Society of Artists paintings. This represents a large increase over the ten or so such paintings on display during a visit three years ago. Much appreciated. Other comments: ▪️The museum is a...More

Taos has so many museums and galleries, but this one shouldn't be missed. Larger than it looks from the outside, the Harwood can be enjoyed in an hour or for the whole day!

I have visited Taos half a dozen times. This museum can do better. How can this be the second oldest NM museum and display such blah art? Maybe it is me but modern, blank art and dull photography are not appealing nor worthy of the...More
