“Who ever knew a steel mill museum could be this entertaining?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

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 from mining rock to finished products. There are continuous-loop old films running, hands-on displays and lots of artifacts from the Pueblo area. There's even an old railroad car that was used as the mill's training ambulance; visitors get to go aboard for a up-close look. The steel mill provides the cohesive basis for the collection, making it very different from the usual assortment of Victorian household goods one often finds in other museums. We've referred friends and they all have been very pleasantly surprised. You will be, too!
