  • Learned so much going through this museum. Read everything. Lots of surprising details. Life was tough back then, we take it for granted now. Can see how too much of a good thing caused the end of the...  more »
  • There is much to learn during a visit to the hacienda. I went on a day when there were only two other people visiting. It made for an excellent visit. It was very quiet allowing me to imagine what lif...  more »
  • We spent about an hour here enjoying the very beautiful and quiet location. Exploring the many different rooms and reflecting on how life must have been back in Colonial days was a unique experience.  more »

  • Interesting place to see how Spanish colonists lived in this area of New Mexico. The tour is self guided and you can go in and out of the different rooms throughout the Hacienda. It would be interesting to know a little more about the families story of how they ended up there and their influence on the surrounding areas development but there are many interesting artifacts and collections throughout the Hacienda. This museum has a lot of continued potential as they gather more information and details that can be added to make the experience even better.
  • Truly a historical place. Another place in time. Luisa is the BEST if she's working the day you visit. A true Taosena.
  • I am going to give this place a 1 only because the employee locked up at about 4:30ish and closing is supposed to be at 5 pm. This was our first time in the town and we actually have family here because Padre Martinez is my husband's great great great great grandfather. We visited with family and left enough time to visit the museum library in order to purchase a book on Padre Martinez. We tried to get into the building and it was locked up tight. The family began walking around the building and my daughter and I stayed in front and she kept knocking on the door. It is Sunday early evening at about 4:40 pm now and a woman answers the door and asks what we want? I said, we want to come in, what are your hours? She said we are closed and we close at 5:00. I told her it is about 4:40 and she said, Well....I want to go home! We are open tomorrow again. I told her that we were visiting from San Diego and we were leaving tonight that we just briefly wanted to go in. I also told her that Padre Martinez was great ect..ect...ect..grandfather to my daughter and husband and her response was, Oh well! We are closed and everything is off and closed up so if you want to see anything you have to come back tomorrow. Needless to say, we didn't get in. We did walk around the property and it is beautiful. Very peaceful. I am certain I would have given it a 5 otherwise. I suggest if you go be there earlier than 4:30 because the woman employee there tonight, Sunday the 24th of September was lazy and rude with no consideration for distance traveled to get there. I would have been happy to be out by closing.
  • Fascinating view into the lives of early settlers.
  • Historic Hacienda. Nice place to get a feel for life in frontier Taos.
