Again, another Rough Guide recommendation. The place was the home of Russian artist and woodcarver Nicolai Fechin. Good art from the Taos Society of artists, but the woodcarvings by Fechin himself are exquisite. Good gift shop.

The architecture alone is worth the price of admission. The carving on the interior has so much attention to detail. There are cubbies, nooks and crannies throughout. The art is worth seeing and the story of the home and the Fechin family is certainly interesting....More
