Museums

Bump your head on the same doorway as Kit Carson. Taos history is filled with colorful characters who helped make Taos what it is today. From trappers and traders to wealthy heiresses, remittance men, legendary artists, and far-sighted entrepreneurs. Taos historic museums, many of which are National Historic Landmarks, offer a glimpse of how our early settlers lived. In Taos, you'll find many doorways that lead to the past. Entre, por favor.

Museum Association of Taos offers a Combination Ticket for $25 that will admit you once to each of the five member museums. It is available at all of the museums. Valid for one year. Visit TaosMuseums.org for more information.
