The Steelworks museum is a fascinating piece of history and I highly encourage a stop here. It chronicles the history of Steel Mills, the mines, and the company towns in the area. The exhibits are really first class and while it's a small museum, it communicates and important slice of American History. It's an easy stop off of I-25 if... More

Located in the CF&I Infirmary, this museum provides a look at the "company town" that was Pueblo. The steel mill provided good paying jobs to a wide variety of immigrants, making Pueblo and the surrounding coal towns (primarily south of Pueblo) a true "melting pot". The history of the labor unions, including the Ludlow Massacre, is a reminder to us... More

My father-in-law worked at the CF&I for more than 35 years so it was truly interesting to go see many of the artifacts he toiled with all those years. My wife clearly remembers him going through the clinic which is a big part of the current museum. I say current as they add new things each time we go. The... More

A well done museum but fairly small. The displays were nice and the setting, the old CFI infirmary, added interest. However the museum seemed slanted towards the old CFI company and the Rockefellers.

It was a small museum. There was a fair amount of local history that we enjoyed, but I can see how it may not be for everyone.

My husband retired from a large Midwest steel mill, so I knew he would find this museum to be interesting - and he did, but so did I. It was well done. While my husband browsed all the "steel making" stuff, I was interested in the history of the communtity. At the height of it's operation, it was a company... More

This is a hidden gem. Just fascinating stuff and my husband the engineer loved every minute of it. We only had one hour until they closed so time was limited but you should definitely stop and just see and learn about manufacturing and founder Osgood. These volunteers are doing great work to continue to develop and maintain their exhibits.

Rarely visited(about 7000 visitors a year per museum worker on day I visited) museum. The museum highlights the steel industry in Pueblo Co and surrounding areas. The museum sits inside the old medical center for the steel mill across the street and you'll see the old x-ray room, medical/examination room. There's also a room with the history of Pueblo located... More

If you like visiting part of history this is the place. The shot tour is worth the minimal fee. The steel mill is part of US and Southern Colorado history.
