This museum in no way compares to Millicent Rogers...Fechin House etc...an enormous amount of wall space wasted on non southwestern "modern" art that looks like 3rd grade art class material..wouldnt return or recommend.

Wonderful collection of vintage and modern art that reflects the history and appeal of Taos. Also a classic Northern New Mexico architectural gem. Be sure to visit the Blumenschein museum a few doors down for a more intimate setting. Both very worthwhile when visiting Taos.

Self-guided museum with New Mexican art. Staff are always friendly. I wish I lived here and could attend some of the museum events. Worth the time to explore.

We loved the Harwood Museum, particularly the new room devoted to Agnes Martin. The place is a modern counterbalance to all the more traditional arts/ crafts widely available and showed a different side to art in the SW

Just not our style of art. We found the Taos Art Museum at Fechin House and the Millicent Rogers Museum much more interesting
