Trip Planner: USA / New Mexico / Taos County / Taos / Kit Carson Home & Museum
Once home to the famous cowboy, Kit Carson Home & Museum now hosts artifacts, antique firearms, and photos from Kit Carson's life. This National Historic Landmark housed the Carson family from 1843 to 1867, and today it preserves and educate visitors on the old way of life. Check out the adobe baking stove and drying rack, and admire Carson's belongings, including a U.S. Army sabre and scabbard, a Masonic hat, and a replica of a .50 caliber Hawkins rifle. In the beginning of the tour, be sure to watch the 20-minute video about the cowboy, and learn more by picking up reading material from the gift shop.

Enjoyed the 20 minute video then House and Museum.
I appreciate the history here. Usually I don't sit through an introductory movie at a museum, but this one is well-produced. It's a small museum, consisting of 4 small rooms, which take about 15-20 minutes to see. That being said I feel $10 is a bit overpriced for such a small museum.
