Millicent Rogers Museum, Taos
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the diverse works at Millicent Rogers Museum, one of the first cultural institutions in New Mexico to exhibit a large collection of Hispanic art. Millicent Rogers and her mother, Mary Rogers, were avid collectors of New Mexican artwork, and their collections provided the foundation for the museum. Explore the galleries filled with Native American and Hispanic artifacts, such as textiles, pottery, jewelry, and photographs. See the large collection of Zuni and Hopi kachina dolls, which represent generous spirits that supported hunters and the well-being of the people who made them. Works of the Taos Pueblo people also grace the gallery walls, paying homage to a local community of artists. Enjoy a self-guided tour, but keep your camera off; photography is not allowed.

  • A wonderful look into the life and collections of Millicent. Incredible pieces of native beadwork and pottery. Loved Millicent's personal work as well, from her paintings to her jewelry designs. A well organized and truly enjoyable space to visit as well.
  • Unique collection of indian arts.
  • Comprehensive collection of southwest art. Well curated and eclectic holdings testify to both an amazing woman and a powerful artistic tradition.
  • Really lovely museum of its kind - located in a historical house and that been sympathetically restored and extended. If you are interested in traditional crafts, jewellery and fashion, it is an absolute gem (excuse the pun) - good collection, nicely laid out and presented. The highlight is the jewellery Millicent Rogers herself designed, displayed well. I found the Museum shop a let-down - it is spacious and full of jewelley and clothing. What I really wanted to buy were reproductions of MR's designs - but there are only 7 silver pieces - and even from a distance you can see that they are not particularly well-made (cast and not hand-finished/polished?), nowhere near the quality of the originals - I wouldn't spend $150 on them. Much of other tradionally inspired stuff is expensive; the most interesting section was where they are re-selling collectors' items.
  • One of the preeminent exhibits of the creme de la creme of classic New Mexico Native pottery and Southwestern jewelry with some of the the most sensitive display and lighting I've seen anywhere in the world. The gift shop is full of treasures old and new; and the place still feels personal, warm and aesthetically satisfying. A visit is always a remarkable, pure, pleasure!
