We spent the weekend visiting 4 of the art museums in Taos. Always wanted to tour the Fechin House. What an architectural gem with amazing hand carvings throughout. Lots of wonderful art. Be sure to enjoy the studio. A real treasure.

The historic building was beatified by Nicolai Fechin who came to Taos after the Russian Revolution. He carved doors and benches and painted wonderful images. Really worth a visit!

This museum exists in Fechin’s house, A grande and unique property ideally suited as an art museum. Nicolai was not only in accomplished painter, including a few spectacular impressionist-inspire pieces, and one amazing abstract painting, but he was also a gifted wood carver and furniture...More

The museum is in the Nicolai Fechin house. The home architecture is wonderful and the wood work around the door, windows and furniture is magnificent. Beautiful setting. Glad it is being kept as it was in the 1920's.

Interesting smallish historical in-town house of the artist Nicolai Fechin. Paintings of his and some of the Taos School. All say the Millicent Rogers museum is better, though we did not see.

$10. There is a discount for folks 65 and older, $8 I think. Definitely worth the cost.
