Twirl is a play and discovery space in Taos, New Mexico that serves as an inspirational community gathering place for families living in or visiting the area. Everything is designed to create a sense of wonder and delight in both adult and child visitors. We aim to encourage open-ended play and self-directed discovery by careful placement of play installations, interactive exhibits and incidental learning stations mixed with artistic touches throughout our facility.
Twirl is housed in a magical 150-year-old Adobe building in the heart of historical Taos. Once inhabited by famous Taosenos Dennis Hopper and Agnes Martin, architectural and artistic treasures are hidden throughout this incredible property including fishpond, wishing well, secret staircase with dragons and snakes, and Ali Baba fireplace. There is a beautiful playroom topped with a glass ceiling where music and dance classes, field trips and craft activities take place. Outside there are two courtyards with a multitude of play facilities and opportunities.
In the past, the property has been home to a collection of art galleries, a deli, a dentist, and a spiritual retreat amongst other businesses. Few would argue however that it has found its most natural role as the magical setting for Twirl.
