to learn about the history of Taos and of the people who lived there a long time ago. Visit of the hacienda, of many rooms and the 2 patios. Interesting but not essential if you go to visit Taos.

There were no tours available when I went, so you have to read all the information. There are times when things are unclear and it would be nice to ask an expert. The history is amazing and the collection of materials is very interesting.

As the last stop on our tour for a class on the history of the southwest, this historic hacienda provided an excellent example of Spanish colonial life. Several rooms around two courtyards showed various aspects of hacienda living from the chapel to the kitchen to...More

It was a wonderful experience to see what a real and rather large hacienda was like. It takes about 30 minutes, but you appreciate the life of the families in the area.

The manager does a wonderful job explaining the hascienda heritage. What is most appealing is the uniqueness of local and timing.

The rooms open off a central area, each displaying artifacts to explain how life was "back in the day." It was very well done, and showed how really strong and tough those people were!

Visiting this place offers a good sense of how early settlers in this part of the country actually lived. It's a self guided tour, easy to follow and short enough to prevent children from being bored by "history".

A little disappointed; however, we visited this time at the slow time of the year for Taos. I expected more active exhibits of how things were at the time the Hacienda was a "working" site. Basically, we just went room to room seeing a few...More

This hacienda was built in 1804 and housed the Martinez family who also ran a trading business, collecting goods from the area and taking them to Mexico on wagon trains for trading. The way the rooms are staged you can imagine the bustling activity in...More
