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 a fishpond, wishing well, secret staircase with dragons and snakes, and Ali Baba fireplace!
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. 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.
