Lovely moderately sized museum part of University of New Mexico. Just off the main drag. Easy parking. Interesting collections... most of which focus on local culture and Taos personalities. Very nice respite from the hustle bustle of downtown Taos.

The Harwood Museum is beautiful, but I admit the art we viewed was not the kind we particularly enjoy. There were some exceptional depictions, but others were lost on us. Because art appreciation is subjective, I suggest visitors to Taos experience this museum.

The Harwood was wonderful. I read the biography of the artist, Agnes Martin, and they have a gallery with her work which was a thrill to see in person. It was so interesting seeing the works of the native Indians too. Perfect size to visit...More

I am by no means a "museum guy" but enjoyed this art museum as a side activity while in Taos. A good collection of local artists and art themes. $10 entry.

We enjoyed this small yet very well curated museum. The space is interesting and attractive as well. The staff was warm, welcoming and helpful.

The collection of art by Taos artists or of Taos locations is fascinating. The collection is very diverse, so has something for all tastes. Very manageable to view in an hour or so. Great setting.

Worth a visit, especially if you are into modern art, as the current exhibit is slanted heavily that way. Beautifully appointed museum.
