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 add greatly to the imagery and message of the dioramas. (Her gallery is in the tower on the same property and should not be missed including the video of her talking about her work and commitment).
The museum is right along the hwy 84/285 just before the turn to Puye Cliffs and Bandalier. When we arrived, it looked closed, but we got out of the car to walk the property and found to our delight that both the museum and gallery were open.
In total, we spent about 2 hours here including an interesting talk with a staff gentleman about the issue of water rights for the surrounding areas as well as those facing the Standing Rock people. Terrific day!
