A small art museum with a mixture of things to see. Very small bookshop area and no cafe. The best thing of all about this museum is the octagonal gallery containing Agnes Martin's paintings, and this one gallery makes it a worthwhile visit.

This stop was top on my list of our recent visit to Taos and the only disappointing thing was limited access to the second floor. The works displayed were very diverse and quietly displayed for a very enjoyable visit.

A small museum with an incredibly diverse collection. Many of the artworks are quite modern and all of them give you something to ponder.

This gem, now a UNM property, was a foundation created in the 1920s for artists. Its exhibit of Taos Modernists, esp. Germans such as Gustave Baumann, is great. Peerless is room esp. built for 9 Agnes Martin paintings the artist donated.

A good portion of the museum was closed to mount a new exhibit when we visited, so we appreciated being offered a reduced admission fee. The museum has a good collection of Taos artists and is definitely worth a visit.

Excellent selection of historic Taos painters' works in an historic building. Also included modern art, New Mexican tinware , and Spanish wood santos. Good selection of books and art in the gift shop.
