Millicent Rogers Museum, Taos

4.8
#1 of 7 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.

    A true Taos treasure! The rotating exhibits showcase local art, some for sale, alongside the permanent collection of Rogers' cutting-edge jewelry, pottery, textiles, and basketry supplemented by designs of her own. A wonderful Southwest setting complements the assemblage. The gift shop has absolutely no import imitations, but instead offers a variety of art, all locally sourced.

    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.

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.
