This home and museum is maintained like it was when the artist lived here. It was fascinating to hear how it was cobbled together from several homes. It is self tour but the signage is very enlightening.

Blumenschein's home, much of which he built himself, is beautiful and the perfect backdrop for this amazing, genius of an artist's work. This museum in so worth touring!

Blumenscheins were an incredibly talented family. The house gave an idea of how life used to be. We really enjoyed it.

One feels the very atmosphere, the stillness, present in the home those many decades ago as though it's enveloped in a permanent siesta.

Sort of interesting. When Blumenschein and wife came to Taos, they bought rooms in this pueblo. Sounds strange.

Yet another Rough Guide recommendation. Much restored house of the co-founder of the Taos Society of Artists and in some respects, the house is better than the actual art on display. Well worth a visit!
