The mission of the Kit Carson Home and Museum, Inc., is to maintain a museum consisting of the original home and artifacts of Kit Carson's home in Taos, New Mexico, for the educational and cultural benefit of the general public, by presenting information and interpretive history at his home in Taos, New Mexico.
The Kit Carson Home and Museum consists of the house and grounds occupied by Kit Carson, his wife Josepha and their many children from 1843 to 1868, at 113 Kit Carson Road in Taos, New Mexico.
The original adobe walls and fireplaces of the home have been renovated for the purpose of maintaining the home in approximately the same condition as it was in 1850.
The Home is a National Historic Landmark, visited by the general publich throughout the year. There are many artifacts within the house, such as guns and Masonic regalia that belonged to Kit Carson, and original photographs of his family.
Throughout the museum are found historic storyboards and interpretive tours are given to the public.
There is a fee charged for entrance into the Museum, and a gift shop with many books about Carson and his times, and other southwestern arts and crafts items.
