Pueble has a beautiful surprise treasure in this Historic Mansion. If you are looking for something to do this would be an afternoon or morning well spent. This was our second visit to the museum - and we will go back again when in the area. This time we were there during the "Wedding and Roses" showcase I think one... More

AWESOME tour guide! She was very informative; was able to answer a lot of random questions we asked about the mansion and the family. You could tell she really enjoyed her job. I felt like I was getting to really know the family that lived in the house as I was going through the tour. A LOT of the entire... More

Reading the reviews for these kind of attractions makes you think that these historic homes are pretty boring. We have toured these type of homes all over the country: Newport, Rhode Island mansions, southern plantations, Frank Lloyd Wright mansions all over the USA, etc. This mansion is truly a gem and unlike any other mansion you might tour simply because...

Beautiful and well-preserved mansion owned by the Thatcher family, one of the old banking families of Pueblo. Ask for Yvonne, an excellent docent for our 1.5 hr tour.

This place is incredible, history, finest craftsmanship my eyes have seen... Went next door to the Carriage House, this is, out of the two weeks of my Colorado visit, my best dining experience... Had a pot pie made from scratch, my wife had salmon over pasta. The pot pie was so good I would sell my soul for the recipe.... More

Rosemount is a spectacular Richardsonian Romnesque home donated to the city of Pueblo CO, and now a museum open for tours. The furnishings and décor items are nearly all original to the house. No one else was there when we were, so it is not crowded like some tours of more famous homes can be. Our docent did not know... More

I grew up in this city, yet never did the tour - shameful! I finally did it when back home for a visit. I went right after the museum opened for the day, so I ended up being the only person on my tour. It was a bit awkward, as the young guide's material was clearly rehearsed, and with only... More

Took the guided tour of this pink granite stone mansion. Ann, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the home between 1891 & 1893. Tour took a little over an hour. Nearly all furnishings & decorations are original to the home. Many Tiffany chandeliers, 9X13-foot stained glass window on staircase, hand-painted celings, ten fireplaces, much woodwork. One of first homes... More

This house has been meticulously preserved through the family, and 90% of what's in there was owned and used by the family. The docents are knowledgeable and friendly, and the 90-minute tour was a delight. There are stairs but also an elevator, so very user-friendly.

This place is impressive!!! Compared to most historic homes, this one is jam-packed with old furnishings, beautiful woodwork, artwork, lighting and clearly a great example of the opulence of the time period. You can visit all three levels of the home by guided tour. This is unusual for historic homes. There are some exotic stuffed birds/animals on display, as owner... More
