We were looking to kill some time inTaos and visited this museum on a lark. Was well worth the time learning about the woman, seeing her collection of Native American jewelry and wardrobe, beadwork, woven textiles, and pottery. The gift shop has a wonderful selection of interesting items for purchase and the location is on a beautiful backroad in Taos.
Millicent Rogers started as a New York socialite. Happily, she finished as a woman who cared deeply for her Taos area culture and surroundings! This is another little jewel of Taos, tucked away so that you driver right past it. But that is the Tasoseno way of doing things, isn't it? Go in, and just wander around, and feel the... 更多
We visited this museum because my boyfriend was interested in the collection of native American jewelry.

Millicent Rogers was clearly a most savvy collector. Her taste was impeccable. This Museum and all its Galleries is worth an extended visit. Make sure you stop by the shop where the offerings are as tasteful as the collection that's on display in the Galleries. You won't be disappointed.
Ms. Rogers honored the Pueblo Indians, as well as others in the Southwest, without inappropriate intrusion into their cultures and ways of life. This museum continues that honor by presenting the finest in Southwest Indian art and artifacts. If history and art are of interest to you, do not miss it.
The museum holds some beautiful jewelry, clothing, beadwork and furniture. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They can tell you the history of almost every piece in the museum. They also have a great knowledge of the history of Millicent and the area. Easy to find north of Taos. Lots of free parking. $10 fee. Gift shop has local... 更多

It is a small but beautiful collection of southwestern design -- textiles, pottery, jewelry, traditional silver & turquoise work, sculpture, and a collection of traditional Spanish Catholic religious arts & crafts. as well as rotating exhibits of southwest arts & crafts on loan from other places. It was well worth... 更多
