The site looks good from the outside, the concept is interesting if you read the website. However they charge $7.50 for visiting the visitor center. The center consists of 3-4 rooms: 1 for the office to get your money, 1 to see plants growing, 1...More

This was not on my list of place of things to do but do put it on yours. It's pretty close to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, if I remember correctly. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to explore but I will the next time.

The visitors center provides an excellent self guided tour of an actual "home". The tour of the visitors center and the surrounding area took us about 1 hour. Docents are knowledgeable and very willing to answer questions.

I love earthships, but the tour was a huge let down. We paid $15 for the two of us to walk through an office building type of earthship and watch a video. The documentary we already watched (Garbage Warrior) was much better than this experience....More

Don't miss this unique stop in Taos! Interesting, sustainable architecture, very cool! Fun to learn about and check out the layout. We especially loved the built in greenhouse. They offer a student discount which saved us a few bucks.
