My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The wood carvings were our favorite part of the museum. The art was wonderful too, but it amazed us that one man was able to carve so much wood in his lifetime - huge, elaborate pieces of furniture! He was an artistic genius!

This is a neat museum featuring Fechin's work but even better because it is in his house. There is amazing woodwork to see as well as artwork. His studio is also very interesting. Be sure to learn the history of the house as his daughter was instrumental in maintaining it.

Loved this museum. Fechin's wood carvings of doors, furniture , etc through out the house are captivating. We happened to run into a docent who offered us a free tour, hearing the stories she shared enhanced the experience. Well worth a visit and walkable in the center of town

A visit to this museum is worth the trouble to see the intricate craftsmanship used by the resident artist to build his home. There's many art pieces of his, as well as, other Taos artists. Nice grounds.

Really enjoyable. The house is remarkable, kitchen astounding. We had actually visited 25 years ago and were glad to see how it has been preserved. Well worth the visit.
