This exhibit (and the museum) were eye-opening about the nature and power of women artist in Taos. Mabel lived the most amazing, interesting life during the early/mid 1900s until she finally setted in - at Taos of course.

This is the most impressive museum in Taos. It is inspiring, historic, and just beautiful. The collection is amazing and the docent tour was very revealing.

A small art museum with a mixture of things to see. Very small bookshop area and no cafe. The best thing of all about this museum is the octagonal gallery containing Agnes Martin's paintings, and this one gallery makes it a worthwhile visit.

Truly a wonderful museum of New Mexico's best. Awesome displays. Congenial staff. A must stop for every visitor to Taos.

This stop was top on my list of our recent visit to Taos and the only disappointing thing was limited access to the second floor. The works displayed were very diverse and quietly displayed for a very enjoyable visit.

A small museum with an incredibly diverse collection. Many of the artworks are quite modern and all of them give you something to ponder.
