We knew nothing about this museum nor did we know who Millicent Rogers was. Very very interesting museum of her life, her jewelry designs, history of potting and weaving. Senior rates and student rates. Really very good stop!

The Millicent Rogers Museum is a tribute to a woman who championed Native American and Hispanic arts. This museum exceeded our expectations. Be sure to read the letter she wrote to her son Paul shortly before her death.

We were pleasantly surprised by this great museum. It is definitely off the beaten path of Taos. The home is a great example of the desert home. The museum contains an awesome collection of many facets of local high end arts and crafts.The exhibits range from a great display of regional blankets to jewelry to rustic furnishings. The courtyard has several great statues displayed nicely with the plantings

I have loved this museum for years! The last time I went rooms 9 & 10 were empty, which was sad but also just means I have to come back and see what is new.
I love the art and history here. I do wish there was a bit more explanation but I am a historian so that might be too much for other people.

This probably is the best that Taos has to offer, but we did not get to the Taos Art Museum, which is in a historic home of an artist. We wanted to see it because we had been advised to to so, but it was closed. We "settled" for MSM. We were happy it happened that way!

This is a beautiful structure located on the northside of Taos. It is easy to get to, and there is ample parking. The views from the property are wonderful--mountains on many sides. The price is reasonable--$10 for most people, $8 for seniors and $6 for military..... The self guided tour is easy to follow and the pieces are well marked and easy to read. The personal pieces are very good, for the most part, but nothing of the quality of the Heard. If you have not been to the Heard, and you like Native American art, put it high on your list--best we have ever experienced.

The MSM is a different museum, and you have to look at it that way. It is built around the fine collection of Jewelry the wealthy socialite Millicent Rogers collected on her on. She has some beautiful pieces and would be appreciated in any museum's collection. Sadly, she does not have enough pieces to fill the entire museum.
Therefore, there are numerous donated pieces--some these are great, others not so great. Plan to spend your time on the worthy pieces (some of th wooden chests are incredible) and bypass the lesser pieces.

The central courtyard is very attractive and is worth a stop. The textile display is particularly of merit. The museum store is excellent and worth your time. If you have the funds, buy a piece! They have some excellent current artists on display--as well as some nice old pieces. The staff is willing to help you with selections.
