This museum was established in 1956 to showcase the collections of Millicent Rogers, the granddaughter of Standard Oil co-founder H.H. Rogers. Millicent lived in Taos for six years before she died from heart disease caused by a childhood case of rheumatic fever. She collected more than 2000 Native American artifacts and also designed her own silver and turquoise jewelry. The museum has expanded to include contemporary Hispanic and Native American art.
The museum is partially accessible. Most of the main exhibits are accessible but one case of jewelry is too high to view from a wheelchair. One of the galleries is accessed by a very steep ramp. The Spanish Colonial Gallery and the Hispanic Religious Gallery are only accessible by two sets of steps.
The parking lot is large enough for RVs. Museum
