Millicent Rogers Museum, Taos

4.8
#1 of 13 in Museums in Taos
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.

  • This little museum is a must-see if you are in Taos. It’s located in a darling home with many rooms of displays around a central courtyard which has some amazing native sculptures. There are displays of paintings, pottery and baskets and other Native American artistry. It’s a special place.
  • I visited the Millicent Rogers Museum to see the pottery & textiles and was amazed at the scope of the collection. Some truely amazing antique Spanish saltito blankets and examples of the evolution in Navajo weaving are on display. Ancestral People's pottery on display shows incredible craftsmanship, and the story of modern Pueblo Pottery and examples are even more amazing. If you love turquoise you must see the jewelry exhibit! Great examples of authentic pawn jewelry and Harvey era jewelry as well as creations designed and in a few cases made by Millicent Rogers herself. Selections from Ms. Rogers early journal and drawings made as a teen also display a talent inheritance couldn't buy. What a fascinating lady! And although she is gone, here collection is here for all to ponder and enjoy.
  • Really cool museum. We learned a ton in the short time we were there. It's well kept and the staff was nice.
  • Loved this museum. If you are into old Hollywood and beautiful jewelry this is for you.
  • Very cute and organized museum just outside of Taos. Cheap price and a wealth of knowledge inside, You walk the museum yourself with a pamphlet that will highlight each room. Each room also has plaques on the wall and cases to tell you about the items in it. To me this one was so interesting because it was more than just artwork (which I know Taos is very famous for art but learning the culture about the Navajos and Hispanics was just fascinating).
