Again, another Rough Guide recommendation. The place was the home of Russian artist and woodcarver Nicolai Fechin. Good art from the Taos Society of artists, but the woodcarvings by Fechin himself are exquisite. Good gift shop.

The house itself was so amazing of extraordinary craftsmanship. Exquisite woodwork, carved doors and banisters. I would love to live here. Wait until you see the gorgeous window in the upstairs bedroom. My husband liked the art since a lot of it spoke to the way of life at that time. He especially love the drawings. This home/ museum is... More

The Fetchin house is quite interesting if you haven't been there. The art display was rather limited and we have seen better there. Fairly expensive admission and the studio wasn't open.

This is one of the most interesting museums/homes we have ever visited. The visit was made much more special by the docent who gave a free tour of about 30 minutes. The house is just an amazing home with wood carved furniture and doors that I have never seen. It is a beautiful home, lovingly preserved and presented.

The house was hand built by the artist Fechin over approximately a 6 year period and is richly embellished with carved details and furniture. The nearby studio is also worth the visit. While building the house Fechin also produced paintings representative of his Russian training and the New Mexico setting. After 6 years of construction Fechin's marriage ended and his... More

I was there after the town had received 20 inches of snow. I was supposed to be snow skiing but the ski mountain had no power so I was wandering thru town when I came on this place. $10 to get inside the Fechin House where the art is displayed. The place is way cool. Has an upstairs and several... More

My college bestie and I decided to spend Spring Break in Taos. We are both educators and love to visit museums slightly more than our hubbies so we couldn't resist stopping at the Taos Art Museum. What a treat! Since my college bestie spent a year teaching in Moscow, the fact that it was formally the home of Nicolai Fechin... More

The architecture alone is worth the price of admission. The carving on the interior has so much attention to detail. There are cubbies, nooks and crannies throughout. The art is worth seeing and the story of the home and the Fechin family is certainly interesting. Make sure to visit the studio/ gift shop area.

We thoroughly enjoyed the art at the Taos Art Museum and the Fechin House itself. The house lends itself perfectly to the viewing of the art and the architecture and carving throughout the house is quite literally amazing. The folks who lovingly tend the home and museum are super nice and informative. Don't miss Fechin's studio and the classy gift... More
