The museum's Board and Trustees are focused on bringing Taos art back to Taos to be exhibited in the place where it was created.

  • This museum has a nice, but very small, art collection on display. The real star of the show is the house itself with all its beautiful carvings. Definitely worth a visit.  more »

  • What a gem. The house itself is so unique and beautiful. The art was beautiful as well. There are so many things to see. Pay attention to the wood carvings done by the artist and owner of the home when he lived there. The staff was extremely friendly and answered all our questions. Don’t miss the gift shop as well. Local artists are represented there.
  • Marjorie Eaton exhibit the day we visited. Wonderful!
  • The Majorie Eaton Exibit is astounding.
  • Taos Art Museum & Fechin House resides in the house built by Russian artist Nicolas Fechin in the late 20’s, he was a painter, sculptor and a woodworker. My favorite was his woodworking, he built his house, incorporating unique design elements and carvings in the Southwest style wood beam supports. Additionally he hand made and hand carved all of the furniture.
  • Very interesting history about Mr Fechin and the art work he did, including the amazing carvings he made and added to his own home where the museum is now located.
