If you are a history buff, the hacienda is not to be missed. The drive out there is beautiful as you go through a county setting. The hacienda and the displays were so authentic that I felt like I was back in time. The curator...More

We loved our trip to the Martinez Hacienda. Do not miss the chance to see one of the most important pieces of history restored to take you back to 1800 when the Martinez family lived in Taos. One wanders the old hacienda and can open...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.
