We always stop at the visitor center every trip to Taos and we visit 3-4x every year from Santa Fe and always are learning new things from the displays and volunteers in the center.

My son and I was here on earlier trip. Enjoyed it so much I brought the boys mother my wife here to enjoy this wonderfully preserved home of one of Taos first entrepreneurs and visionary .Severino Martinez. If you enjoy what it was like back in the early 1800's in this vast land. Take the tour. It's self guided so you can take as long as you want. To learn of the life and times in early Taos.

Learned so much going through this museum. Read everything. Lots of surprising details. Life was tough back then, we take it for granted now. Can see how too much of a good thing caused the end of the good things. Fascinating. The very friendly ladies who work there are descendents of the area's pioneers, they can tell you a lot. Felt like I was walking amongst Tao history.

There is much to learn during a visit to the hacienda. I went on a day when there were only two other people visiting. It made for an excellent visit. It was very quiet allowing me to imagine what life then would have been like.

We spent about an hour here enjoying the very beautiful and quiet location. Exploring the many different rooms and reflecting on how life must have been back in Colonial days was a unique experience.
