Blumenschein's home, much of which he built himself, is beautiful and the perfect backdrop for this amazing, genius of an artist's work. This museum in so worth touring!

Blumenscheins were an incredibly talented family. The house gave an idea of how life used to be. We really enjoyed it.

Visitors get a double benefit of viewing some great Taos Society art in the home of one of the Society founders. Blumenschein and his family lived at this site for many years-gradually building their home out and buying adjacent property. The Buck Dunton “cottage” is...More

Sort of interesting. When Blumenschein and wife came to Taos, they bought rooms in this pueblo. Sounds strange.

Yet another Rough Guide recommendation. Much restored house of the co-founder of the Taos Society of Artists and in some respects, the house is better than the actual art on display. Well worth a visit!

The Museum is very well done. One gets a perspective of the development of Taos as a center for the arts in this area. The Blumenscheins were outstanding artists and contributors to the growth of Taos as a place that appreciated and supported the arts....More
