This museum is a gem. Of special interest are the wood carvings of the original owner, Nikolai Fechin. We chanced upon a guided tour, which was very informative (contact them for regular guided tour hours.)

This museum is also called "Taos Art Museum at Fechin House."

It’s housed in the home of one of the founders of the Taos art community . The adobe house contains furniture built by the artist as well as his art and other Taos artists. The proverbial gift shop

Very interesting museum in a fascinating and beautiful home. Enjoyed the structure itself as much as the art

Fechin's paintings and drawings are stunning! There is also a large collection of the Taos School artists in the museum.
Fechin was also an accomplished woodworker and he carved all the doors and trim in the house. A large collection of his hand built furniture is also on display. This museum is a hidden gem!

While the collection at the Taos Art Museum is very interesting (perhaps too much Fechin), the building and the startlingly beautiful wood work done by Nikolai Fechin himself is worthy of its own museum...oh, it IS a museum! Well worth the time and effort.
