The Taos Art Museum is located in the former house of Russian artist Nicolai Fechin, his wife Alexandra and daughter Eya. The museum's primary aims are to improve awareness of the works and patronage of Taos artists and to nurture local artistic development. With many of the works of the Taos Society of Artists held by museums outside of New Mexico, they intend to "Bring Taos art back to Taos."

  • The art is beautiful, there's no doubt, but you get the bonus of the house it's contained in. We were lucky enough to go on a day when the exhibit was art by Fechin himself. The friend I was...

  • This place is super dope!! They are super nice and helpful:). The bubble room has the best soundtrack and is surreal. The employees are super nice and I will definitely be coming back soon. Between the colours, the music and the atmosphere, you are guaranteed to walk out this museum with a lasting impression!
  • Art and architecture — In five years Fechin built this stunning place, hand carving the woodwork and furniture at night. During daylight hours he painted. Go see it, then vow to watch less TV.
  • Very interesting and beautiful art museum. Centrally located next to the Kit Carson City Park.
  • After many trips to Taos I'm glad I finally made it here. As a home builder I was fascinated by how the house was built and the details in the woodwork and windows. If you're having a "museum day" in Taos, this one is worth the visit.
  • Beautiful turquoise jewelry and southwestern carvings and paintings! Staff was very friendly
