My parents weren't too taken with this museum, in part because the train car exhibit out front was locked and in part because some of the exhibits were dull. I really like old medical buildings and supplies, and therefore really liked this museum. It is pretty small though.

We were so looking forward to visiting this site. My husband loves industrial archeology and this seemed like a prime example. We arrived about 9:45 for a 10:00 opening. Since we were early, we decided to run an errand. When we arrived back at 10:10, there was a paper sign taped above the opening hours sign that the museum would... More

A nice place to visit- many pictures, a lot of historical items- the tour guide was only ok- you do not go into the mill itself

This is fascinating! We spent all day exploring this fascinating place. The buildings are stately and beautiful. Across the highway are the smoke stacks of the original steelworks. Also outside is a restored railroad car called the rescue car. It was used to train personnel what to do in case of disaster. The interior of the car has lovely mahogany... More

I always take my out of town family to visit this small but very well done museum. The medical exam rooms and equipment, very well done. The exhibits show family life and steel making over a span of 100 years. The docents are happy to share their knowledge and answer any questions. Be sure to visit the gift shop.

The steel industry put Pueblo on the map, and has employed significant numbers for generations. I understand the desire of those associated with the plant to preserve it's history, but it holds little interest for those who are not so associated. Meanwhile, there are a succession of fundraisers and grant applications to support the museum, with the only observable result... More

Forget anything you thought you knew about "boooorrr-ing man-stuff!" The Steelworks Museum in Pueblo Colorado is anything but! Housed in the old medical building, the displays and docents walk you through an amazing period of Colorado's history. Visitors learn about medical treatments, family and social life, politics, ingenuity and invention, heroes and villains AND, of course, the steel making process... More
