We were not familiar with Fechin, but went to this museum on recommendation of an artist friend. This turned out to be one of the best stops on our trip. The house is amazing and a great tribute to Fechin's woodworking skills. Take the time...More

Not all of the art was our style, but the building itself is incredible. The hand carved woodwork in the building is beyond compare. It was well worth the visit and the exhibit of Western Art really appealed to us.

I found the museum by just walking on the right street. It is a house which is beautiful in itself with western pieces and artist paintings. Don't miss the 2nd floor room or glass room.

The home itself is charming, the woodwork and original fittings/furniture amazing. Really enjoyed wandering with only a few other visitors. Garden and grounds to also enjoy and a lovely gift shop with a tasteful selection of moderately priced items.

As artists we have long admired Nicolai Fechin's work. We had no idea that he had been such a presence in Taos and that the museum was located in the house he designed, built and lived in. What a treat! The collection is not large...More

Small, and the collection isn't great, but if you're into art, you're going to go to every museum you ever come across, so go. The studio has a video playing that's very informative.

Great collection in a unique environment. Fechin's home, furnishings and carved woodwork detail are outstanding as is his studio. Scale is perfect for an hour visit since there are so many other activities to pursue in Taos. High recommend!

The Taos Art Museum, once the home of Russian artist Nicolai Fechin, is perhaps the top art attraction in Taos, both for its rotating exhibitions of Taos School paintings and also for the artistry of the interior decor. Nicolai Fechin was the son of a...More
