Our mission statement is as follows: "to share and celebrate the arts and cultures of the Southwest."
The prestigious Millicent Rogers Museum is built upon the distinctive and iconic vision of Millicent Rogers. After her death the family, led by her son Paul Peralta-Ramos, established a museum to showcase her stellar collection of Native American jewelry and textiles and superb examples of Hispanic religious and secular artists.
Northern New Mexico is home to diverse cultures and a celebrated history. Native Americans of the pueblos are indigenous to Taos. Hispanic immigrants have become a part of the landscape since the late 1,600's. The history and landscape of the region attracted Millicent Rogers to Taos. Most importantly, she responded to the creative beauty of these cultures and she discovered talent, design, and humanity through their arts. The Museum builds upon this foundation and actively collects, displays, and interprets the arts representing all cultures in northern New Mexico.
We welcome visitors to experience the unique spirit of northern New Mexico and of Millicent Rogers herself.
