We actually took a long road trip to get there. Fechin definitely has a very distinct style as an artist and his life story is worth checking out. And, of course, the house is beautiful and full of interesting details. Special thanks to the staff - very helpful and knowledgeable!

Also known as the Fenchin House, this is a beautiful property. The museum is housed in the historic home. Exhibits vary, and are usually from the Taos artists. Very nice.

The Taos Art Museum in the one-time Nikolai Fechin house is a "must" when visiting the city. At $10 for adults, it is worth it to step back in time and get a feel for what living in Taos was like when the art colony was first becoming established. Fechin's paintings, as those of the other artists represented, are all very interesting. But the real star is the house itself, from the period kitchen, to the carved wood details, to the magnificent fireplaces. Anyone who is an aficionado of Southwestern architecture owes it to themselves to spend an hour or two here, soaking in the atmosphere.

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
