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.

  • Great museum. I would have loved more history and photos of Millicent Rogers herself. The Maria Martinez pottery room was fascinating. There were a couple rooms towards the end that I breezed through. One room had drawings from high school students. Great drawings, but an abundance and not of interest. The placards are well detailed. Overall, definitely worth a visit!
  • I only had a short afternoon in Taos, so only had time for one museum. I am happy with my selection, as the collection has a delightful variety of historic and contemporary pieces from the locality. I left delighted, amazed and further informed, which is everything i could ask from a good museum. A top notch experience for $10!
  • The museum is probably one of the best I have ever gone to. The multiple collections here are very interesting. The namesake was a beautiful person who had a beautiful soul. If you like art and jewelry this is a must go to. There is also antique religious items and carpentry. The best thing that warms the soul is a letter the namesake wrote to her son shortly before her death. You will need to go there to see what was composed in the letter, the words will enlighten you and free your soul of worries for the rest of your life.
  • Fascinating glimpse into her life, her artwork, and her collection of historic southwest Native American art. If you're in Taos, do not miss this museum!
  • Interesting little museum showing the life and collection of the Standard Oil heiress. She had a lavish and previledged life with many items made by native Americans of the southwest.
