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.

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.

A visit to this Museum will give you great insight into this tribe's history. The installation is compelling and quite thought provoking while also being entertaining. The display of a prominent local artist's current sculpture is impressive. There's also a small gift shop with well...More

We greatly enjoyed our visit to this small but thoughtful museum. The permanent exhibit consists of a 3-D visualization of the "seasons" or history of the northern Pueblos, the Tewa people. Be sure to refer to the info sheet handed out at the front desk....More

Though this museum is small, it is free. We learned a lot about this tribe and it's history. I thought the seasons exhibit was very well done. Great job and congrats to this small tribe trying to recover it's past!
