Really enjoyed this little piece of history, Lots of artifacts, tools, and other items from 200 years ago. Self paced tour through the 21 rooms reveals a different aspect of life here at the time.

A little off the main road but only a 5 minute drive. This place was very well preserved and very well displayed. All the rooms had good explanations and artifacts all dating from the early 19th century. It was a fabulous display of old NM life! There was a lot to learn and see here. Its worth the short drive...

The hacienda is as it was in the 19th century which gives a good perspective of the was life was during that time. The lady who greeted us gave us a good overview also.

This is a large house built in the 1800s when Cheyennes were attacking in the area. It is open for tours, but it does not have a restaurant. This attraction is misplaced.

Susan, Thanks for your recent visit and for pointing out the somewhat curious fact that the English language translation of our museum's traditional name was somehow tagged as a restaurant on a separate listing. We became curious ourselves after receiving a few phone calls requesting dinner reservations. We believe the mix up has been corrected now. Take care and best... More

This is a little out of the way, but worth the time it takes to get there. We learned a lot about the Mexican side of history in the Taos area. It is a beautiful place and well kept. It was one of our favorite spots to visit while in Taos. Highly recommend if you want to see the Mexican... More

We stopped at the outside of the Hacienda on our wonderful Trolley Tour. Dave, our guide suggested that we go back to visit. We were not disappointed. The self-directed tour is excellent. Each room is numbered and a corresponding notation on the handout provided described in detail the artifacts and purpose of each room. Additional information was also provided. During... More

We had driven by the Hacienda on out Trolley tour and Dave, the guide, made us promise to go to the Hacienda. It was a wonderful way to see the beginning of the settlement of Taos.

The exhibits within the structure have been improved and illustrate Spanish colonial life very nicely.

This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. I believe it was the first home in Taos, but if not, certainly one of the oldest structures there. Enjoyed seeing how they lived.
