The twisty, winding road brings you back in time to when Indian raids were something to be feared. This self contained home shows in great detail what life was like in the wild west. Tons of artifacts help the visitor understand the way people lived...More

This was one of the better museum visited in our recent trip to New Mexico. It is a bit out of the way but well worth the time. They don't get very many visitors which is a real shame. The self-guided tour gives an idea...More

Nearly missed this place, not well signposted but glad we persevered. Definitely a hidden gem. We spent quite sometime going through and reading the history - fascinating. Definitely a must see in Taos.

This is one of those very old, must see attractions in Taos. A lot of history transpired within the thick adobe walls.

Huge old hacienda built in 1804. 21 rooms and 2 large courtyards. Many interesting artifacts are displayed, and the guide for the self-guided tour is helpful in understanding the place.

This is a self guided tour. We really enjoyed seeing "life" from the past. Easy to walk, but not wheel chair accessible. It does not take you long to do this, highly recommend as a Taos activity.
