The Museum is very well done. One gets a perspective of the development of Taos as a center for the arts in this area. The Blumenscheins were outstanding artists and contributors to the growth of Taos as a place that appreciated and supported the arts. The home and museum is very well done and provide a very interesting perspective on... More

I love this little house that the Blumenschein family lived in; not better place to showcase their art work. It has his art work of course, but also bodies of work from his wife & daughter, also his friend. He was one of the first artist to stumble upon Taos, and fell in love with this area.

After visiting the Kit Carson Home and Museum and learning about 1800s life in New Mexico, my son and I stopped here. At the Blumenschein Home and Museum we learned about early 1900s life. The home still contains their original furnishings, as well as a wealth of art. It was interesting to learn how they expanded their home as they... More

This was the actual home of artist Blumenschein and his wife and daughter. There is art by both husband and wife with original furniture as well. Allow about 45 mins. to go through.

What a treat to learn about this talented family--not only art but also ball sports a very competitive level!! Lots of travel to Europe to expand knowledge and learn from others! The artifacts in the home are a history lesson and the family photos priceless. Worth the time to visit this attraction!

The Blumenschein family was important in the early Taos artist movement and the family's work is interesting but not as notable as many other artists of the period. The house is furnished as it was in the 1930s and 40s but has a worn feel that might be enduring if it weren't a bit sad.

This is quite a large house spread over one floor, right next to the Harwood Museum. The rooms are filled with interesting old furniture from a time gone by, with information about the artist family who owned the home and their art collection. I enjoyed my visit of around an hour. They have a small bookshop/gift shop. There is a... More

I was just walking around town and I happened upon this place. The family were all artists and they developed their house by buying the neighbors's places and connecting the homes, so it is quite a large adobe house with many of their original furnishings and, of course, their art.

We visited the Blumenshein Home while recently visiting the Taos area. Thoroughly enjoyed touring this home and all the artwork displays throughout. I highly recommend a visit.

My husband and I enjoyed this museum. We love old buildings with all their charm and quirks. It doesn't take long to go through the rooms. The paintings and photographs are good and the home reflects how houses can go through many changes. Enjoyable but once is enough.
