Great collection of paintings in a historic house. The hand carved doors, window treatments and furniture alone are worth the price of admission. Also a nice garden area and gift shop. We had an enjoyable conversation with the docent (curator?) - provided a lot of...More

The house itself and history is pretty impressive. Looking at the hand carved pillars was pretty cool. It was the type of place you could imagine the people who lived there. Also a pretty decent museum/store.

The art hanging in this little museum is very nice—a sampler of art done in Taos in early 20th century. But what drops your jaw is the beautiful and extensive woodwork done by the artist Nicolai Fechin for this place which was once his home....More

The art displayed at the Taos Art Museum is always wonderful and nicely displayed, but the real star of the show is the Fechin House itself, the former home of Russian artist, Nicolai Fechin. Fechin not only painted, mostly portraits, with insight and flair, but...More
