    Small museum, covering the episode surrounding Governor Bent. Old gift shop holds old treasures at very low pricing. Taos pottery for sale here. We will go back for a longer visit.  more »

    Not much information to learn. One room does have some unorganized papers and a summary of Governor Bent. Walked thru in about 5 minutes. Some interesting old antiques to see. This needs to be updated...  more »

    When visiting Taos this is among the must see attractions. It gives you an opportunity to learn and feel the rich history of Taos as you stand on the actual location upon which events transpired.  more »

    It's small, and there aren't a lot of labels. I wouldn't make it the first place you visit to learn local history, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Where to stay in Taos

Taos offers a wealth of accommodations right in town and in the surrounding area. Plenty of small inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels lie in and around the business district, but your options greatly expand when you consider renting a small house or an apartment. Where you stay depends on what you come for. If you want to use Taos as a base for seeing local sites, opt for accommodation within the city limits. If you plan to spend most of your time in the mountains, the Valdez and Arroyo Seco areas are convenient. Staying between these areas and downtown puts you close to the Taos Pueblo Indian Lands.
