This is just one couple's opinion, bu we were very disappointed in what the Harwood had to offer, art-wise, this past Sunday. For us, there was an over-abundance of Modern art displays and not nearly enough of everything else. If you're looking for wonderful New...More

During our recent early Nov visit, the Harwood displayed more than 20 Taos Society of Artists paintings. This represents a large increase over the ten or so such paintings on display during a visit three years ago. Much appreciated. Other comments: ▪️The museum is a...More

Taos has so many museums and galleries, but this one shouldn't be missed. Larger than it looks from the outside, the Harwood can be enjoyed in an hour or for the whole day!

Agnes Martin is one of my favorite artist. Have followed her for years - just saw a major retrospective in NY on her. The "chapel" here of her work, that she designed, is so deeply spiritual and moving. A "must see." It takes me out...More

Lovely moderately sized museum part of University of New Mexico. Just off the main drag. Easy parking. Interesting collections... most of which focus on local culture and Taos personalities. Very nice respite from the hustle bustle of downtown Taos.

The Harwood Museum is beautiful, but I admit the art we viewed was not the kind we particularly enjoy. There were some exceptional depictions, but others were lost on us. Because art appreciation is subjective, I suggest visitors to Taos experience this museum.
