Owner description: Living Museum of Late Spanish Colonial Period in Northern New Mexico built in 1804 by Severino Martinez and his family. On National Register of Historic Places. Winter Hours are a shortened version of our regular season hours.

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 what life was like in colonial times.

I really enjoyed this museum! You will receive a brochure at the entrance that explains each of the rooms which are numbered. This was one of the first settlements in the Taos area and the history is very interesting. One of the rooms has art exhibits which are changed out every couple of months.

This was the second time to the museum. This time with another couple who were interested in the history of the area (1804). Well done with lots of historical items and goos explanations.

We spent about 2 hours and our friends thanks us for taking them!

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.
