Overview
More
In 1988, the Pueblo of Pojoaque established the Poeh Cultural Center as the first permanent tribally owned and operated mechanism for cultural preservation and revitalization within the Pueblo communities of the northern Rio Grande Valley. The facility itself resembles a traditional Pueblo village with its adjacent art studio buildings and outdoor gathering areas. The Center emphasizes arts and cultures of all Pueblo People with focus on the Tewa-speaking Pueblos of Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Clara, Tesuque and Nambe. The Poeh is a place for us to share our Tewa culture with guests from other cultures through our exhibits and events, and guided interpretive tours of our exhibits, facilities and lands.

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.

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,...More

Due to its location, just off 84/285 many people may miss this excellent museum as they rush to leave or arrive in Santa Fe. You should allocate some time and stop, it is well worth it.
