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.

If you want to know more about the indigenous history of the Pojoaque area, this is a must-see place to stop. With beautiful architecture done in the traditional manner and carefully curated exhibits, this makes for an excellent place to learn and appreciate harmony.

We stopped by the museum on a whim while driving north from Santa Fe toward Espanola. It was an amazingly gorgeous day and the blue skies really accented the adobe brown structure. Take time to explore the exterior before going inside to admire the sculptures, some of which are still in progress. There is also an art gallery next door... More

This was our first time at the Poeh Museum. We stopped in one rainy afternoon on our way from Taos to Santa Fe and we are so glad we did! We were tired after travelling but after our visit to Poeh we felt revived. There is an amazing permanent exhibit about the history of pueblo people, told in images sounds... More
