nothing "special' but a solid example of a local dwelling from 1800's. $8 charge is over the top in my opinion, but Thursday is good as local artists work and show their wares. A good injection of real history vs drivel they teach kids in...More

The only old adobe hacienda of its kind we've found in N. NM. Explanatory information is good. Educational value is high.

After visiting the Taos Pueblo to see how the native people live, the Blumenschein house to see how the artists lived, a visit the the Martinez Hacienda provides a look at life among the 18th century Spanish and their servants.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking thru this historical hacienda. One can almost picture how families lived during the wild west.

We always look for something to whet our appetite for local history. The Martinez Hacienda satisified that need. It was very interesting to see how the Spanish-New Mexicans lived in the early 19th century. Most recommended.

This museum truly reveals the nature of the life the Spaniards/Mexicans lived when they came to Taos. It is quite fascinating.
