Taos, New Mexico Tourism
Much of what makes Taos, and the rest of New Mexico unique is its cultural heritage. Visitors to the area have the opportunity to experience and learn about the cultures that have influenced much of its art and architecture. While relaxing at the Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs may be just what the doctor ordered, nobody should miss the opportunity to visit the Taos Pueblo or the area's main art museums.
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs: The sacred mineral springs have long attracted visitors from around the world. Visitors to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs can enjoy soaking in the hot pools and mud baths, then receive a variety of spa treatments.
Taos Pueblo: Visitors are welcome at this Native American community. The Pueblo architecture is stunning, and visitors have the opportunity to take tours of the adobe buildings and grounds. Many Pueblo artists exhibit and sell their wares within the Pueblo.
Taos Art Museum: Art fanatics will love this museum which features works from early 20th century Taos. The museum's building itself is a showpiece, as it was built by a Russian born artist who utilized both Russian and Pueblo design in its construction. Exhibits change regularly, and there are educational opportunities such as classes and special tours available.
Earthship Biotecture Visitor's Center: Earthships are a type of sustainable housing that incorporate solar energy, integrated water systems, and other environmentally friendly features. Earthship Biotecture builds these homes and teaches others to do the same. Visitors are welcome to tour one of these homes and to attend lectures on environmental topics.
Millicent Rogers Museum: Millicent Rogers was an heiress and patron of the arts who relocated to Taos for health reasons.

She amassed an impressive collection of fine art as well as clothing and jewelry, which are on display in her museum. Lovers of turquoise jewelry will want to visit Rogers' collection, as will pottery enthusiasts: The museum has a permanent collection of the work of Maria Martinez, a famous Taos Pueblo artist who helped to preserve native pottery techniques.
