Just a beautiful setting for exhibition of western artwork. The house shows influences from Spain and Russia as well as the Southwest. Besides the house and its two stories of exhibits, there is a garden and a studio in a separate building. Take the time...More

Not all of the art was our style, but the building itself is incredible. The hand carved woodwork in the building is beyond compare. It was well worth the visit and the exhibit of Western Art really appealed to us.

I found the museum by just walking on the right street. It is a house which is beautiful in itself with western pieces and artist paintings. Don't miss the 2nd floor room or glass room.

The home itself is charming, the woodwork and original fittings/furniture amazing. Really enjoyed wandering with only a few other visitors. Garden and grounds to also enjoy and a lovely gift shop with a tasteful selection of moderately priced items.

As artists we have long admired Nicolai Fechin's work. We had no idea that he had been such a presence in Taos and that the museum was located in the house he designed, built and lived in. What a treat! The collection is not large...More

I stumbled upon this delightful treasure after I discovered The Taos Art Museum was the former residence of Nicolai Fechin. Nicolai Fechin was a Russian born artist who established his family in Taos. Why Taos? Several European and American artists were inspired by the beauty...More

If you love to see great buildings - this is a must. Nichlai Fechin was not only a master with the brush as an artist, he was also a master woodworking. All the woodwork in the building was done by him, the carved woodwork and...More
