Impressive old hacienda - an adobe homestead -which is divided into about twenty rooms all with a theme, such as religious icons and dolls, weaving etc. These all belonged to the fairly rich, trading family who lived here in the early 19th century

We always stop at the visitor center every trip to Taos and we visit 3-4x every year from Santa Fe and always are learning new things from the displays and volunteers in the center.
