We enjoyed a wonderful personal tour of this small museum by a locally resident of the reservation who gave us sincere insights into life and history there. The art and exhibits are great,.... you can spend as little as half an hour or as much as half a day there and leave with some new thoughts. Don't miss the modern... More

We loved this place. It is one of the best museums of its type we have ever visited. The historical perspective it provides of the Tewa speaking people is well presented by the beautiful dioramas. I believe the painter is M. Medina. Just wonderful perspective and so many fascinating details when you take a long look. Roxanne Swentzell's amazing sculptures... More

We truly have wanted to visit this interesting looking Museum. Every single time we go there, they are not open. The latest incident was for some kind of Holiday art show that was supposed to be scheduled...but when we finally arrived to an empty parking lot...there was a "closed" note on the door. So I guess what I am saying... More

Free admission to the museum. Donations appreciated. The exhibits tell the story of the Tewa-speaking pueblos (including this Pojoaque Puebla) in a very personal, first-person way. Nice examples of historic pottery - some recently reclaimed from the Smithsonian - and very informative descriptions. Worth about an hour visit.

We discovered the Poeh Cultural Center by accident when we went to visit Roxanne Swentzell's adjacent Tower Gallery--and were so glad we did. The permanent exhibit in the Poeh Museum offers a history of the Tewa people from their perspective--informative and moving, brought to life with sculptures by Roxanne Swentzell and murals by Marcellus Medina. The museum also features changing... More

As a visiting Curator from Canada I was told to visit this place after a private tour of the Wainwright...very much worth the trip to see traditional culture inspiring new young artists. Love the classic diorama style inside and the classic village look outside.

Wow! What a great blending of old and new - the interpretive centre gives the story of the local culture and history while the art gallery shows the modern collective creativity. While we were there a young artist`s work was on display - showed a transition from graffiti to tribal inspired mixed media - with a pow Wow!!

The Poeh Center offers a look into art and artists mainly from New Mexico’s six Tewa-speaking pueblos. They curate, display and preserve traditional and contemporary art and cultural work in both a permanent collection and photo archive of the Pojoaque pueblo life and history. The center has a wonderful six-room journey taking the visitor from the beginning through current day... More

I am very glad we took the time to stop. The exhibits are loaded with great information about the history and culture. This would be a great stop for a family.

Located adjacent to the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum and the Roxanne Swentzell Tower Gallery is a Stone Studio identified with a "Stone Gallery" sign over the doorway. Some pieces can be seen outside in the courtyard with others located around the museum/gallery/studio complex. This is an obvious and important element to a visit to this place.
