This museum of Southwestern Indian Art is a fantastic display and education of the subject. Millicent Rogers was yet another eccentric, wealthy person living in what must have been a VERY quiet New Mexico in the 40's and 50's (there but for the sake of wealthy would I be). The art is beautiful and the displays informative, even if the... More

Although the museum covers more, it concentrates on Ms Rogers life and collecting in the Taos area. The museum has avery nice collection and explanation of southwest us tribal pottery---plus other collections. it's a good way to spend 2 hours.

I am so glad my son and I spent time at this museum during our recent Christmas trip. Millicent Rogers was quite the woman . . . society maven, art and turquoise jewelry collector, designer. I loved the way the galleries were arranged, and the accompanying descriptions and brochures were well done. My favorite exhibition was her extensive collection of... More

Visited this collection on our way to Taos pueblo and were blown away by the collection and biography of Millicent Rogers. Great history of her family and her passion for the arts and the South West. Out of the way but so worth the trip if you like small intimated museums.

We spent almost 2 hrs here and loved every minute of it. Pottery, jewelry, religious carvings and more all related to the west. The house is also worth seeing and the gardens look amazing. 12 rooms filled with exceptional work from the west.

The drive north of Taos is well worth doing in its own right, and a stopover to see this collection (and to learn more about the woman behind it) makes it better still.

The museum contains wonderfully curated collections of pottery, jewelry, beadwork, katsinas, textiles, furniture, and devotional art from Native American and Hispanic traditions, plus the life story of Millicent Rogers and her own jewelry and clothing designs and drawings are fascinating in their own right. The museum itself is a lovely repurposed hacienda that belonged to her close friends. The descriptions... More

Had no idea who Millicent Rogers was or why she was in Taos. In only six years her passion for the Southwest left a lasting impression on the area. The collections are superbly displayed and contain some of the finest pottery and jewelry from the Southwest that I have seen. Learning of her life through the tour was a special... More

October 21, 2016 - Around 3pm in the afternoon, we drove out of Taos a short distance to visit Millicent Rogers Museum. The senior admission price is $8 a person. We spent approximately 2 hours at the museum. It has a lot of interesting exhibits of Indian pottery, rugs, art, and jewelry. I recommend taking the time to visit Millicent... More

Loved learning about Millicent Rogers and her desire to preserve Southwestern Art. Great stop before or after going to the Rio Grande River Bridge.
