We visited here on a recent day trip to Taos. I feel that this is a must see on a Taos trip. I found the museum to be well presented even though it was small
My husband reads a lot of American history and it was his request to visit the Kit Carson home. We both found it very interesting and we'll worth a visit if you are in the area. As visitors to the USA it was very informative of the way of life back in this times.
It helps to know the context of Carson's life before you visit, as this museum doesn't provide much detail. I expected that--especially in New Mexico--the account of Carson's service in the Army would be covered, but I saw little/nothing telling how he led the troops that took the Navajo people off their land. Overall, was worth a visit, but more... 更多
as a child Kid Carson was a tv show - did not really get who he was. what an incredible story. The house is a largish adobe house with low ceiling but Kit was rather short. - He was a rather undistinguished physical man but was a great western guide and had a major role in the opening of the... 更多
I recommend visiting the museum, just to see how Kit and friends lived in those days. We're talking 1820's to 1840's....so it was a hard life mixed in with a healthy dose of Native Americans...mostly renegades. I strongly suggest reading Kit's autobiography that can be purchased in the store. I could not put the book down. It is amazing the... 更多
What a privilege to sit in the home Kit Cason shared with his wife and children. He was an amazing man and did so much to help relationships between the white settlers and the Indians. The town and the State should do more to honour this man and his memory. Perhaps something along the lines of the Buffalo Bill Museum... 更多
This is worth your time and fee to enter and view historical antiques and documents. Short walk from anywhere around the plaza
This museum doesn't require a long visit but it was enjoyable. The film was worth watching. it is not a big museum but it does a nice job of place Kit Carson in the history of the era.
Held my daughter's wedding here, what a delightful venue. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly, collection is small but tightly curated. Be sure not to miss it while you're in Taos.
Way overpriced, but interesting. We learned a lot about Kit Carson and his life. Facts that we did not know, but the museum is small, and overpriced for the two rooms of displays, the Film is about 20 minutes and interesting.
