An excellent museum and archive of Pueblo History, CF&I and it's predecessors, the Industrial Revolution, labor unions, mining, steel making, railroads and well known personalities of the 1890s-1930s (Mother Jones, John D. Rockefeller, etc). Everyone living in Pueblo should be encouraged to visit - you will learn much more about this city and what formed the basis of our economy... More

I was not expecting a museum for steelmaking history in Pueblo, Colorado. This place is a cool unassuming museum that tells an awesome story of how this place in the west was born. How the steel industry brought immigrants from Europe, Mexico, and Asia to the Pueblo area for jobs? Of course, we have seen this story play out in... More

Used a Groupon, but would have paid full price without complaint. Clean facility. Well organized displays. Friendly attendant. It was nice to see a field trip of elementary students getting a history/geography lesson, as well. Gift shop is small.

They have interesting artifacts, photos and equipment from the steel era of this city. Its a short and sweet self guided tour through the building. You can explore and read historical timeline data at your leisure. The actual Steel Mill is across the highway next to the rail road tracks. The current museum is located in the building that was...

A very nice museum which reveals the impact the steel industry had and still has in Pueblo. If you have interest in the steel industry, the people and the cultural study of early 20th century to present in the Pueblo area this is a must see.

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.
