This is a great piece of history; I had my 11 and 15 year old daughters with me (a difficult age to entertain in your "typical museum"), and they were very interested in seeing/touching what it was like to live as a pioneer in this...More

Certainly interesting, this is an open air museum of the Martinez estate - a once working farm. Stroll the property and duck into rooms which all serve as mini museums. Some of the property is original and some reconstructed.

The experience was authentic. Furnishings were sparse and simple - no frills in the lives of the Martnez family and workers. "Weaver Anne" showed us some of the oldest weaving carding equipment that had no metal - only thistles. The displays were very well identified...More

I can highly recommend this place as part of your visit to Taos. The building is a great historic adobe in beautiful condition. Each room houses an exhibit, usually having to do with what that room was used for. I thought it was well designed...More

We were encouraged to go to this museum by the staff at the Blumenschein Home & Museum as it's possible to buy a joint ticket at a reduced rate. It was definitely worth the visit to see what life was like in the earliest days...More

A visit here gives you an idea of the depth of Taos history. Long before hippies and east coast artists longing to breath free there was Taos. Its a good place to go, after the Pueblo.

Make sure you either have a GPS or good directions because this place can be a little hard to find, but if you get there, it's worth it. This, like the Taos Pueblo, is a must-see for history buffs. It does a great job of...More

The Hacienda was built in the early 1800's and gives you a wonderful view of what life was like at that time for the wealthy ranchers in the area. This is a little off the beaten track, but well worth the short drive from the...More

This is a good location to learn a bit about the early settlement of this part of the country. The tour is self guided, with a number of placards to explain the uses of the building and how things were done by the early settlers.
