One of the most interesting museums - focusing on local labor history, it is very well organized (no pun) and educational.

With a great backdrop of photographical material, this museum is well organized and walks you through the company's history, labor and community relations as well as how steel is made. There are many other subjects including medicine, education and socialization of worker children as well as an international workforce.

Admittedly knowing very little about the steel industry in general I chose visit to gain an insight, which I was able to do. I was able to watch a CF&I sales film from a bygone age, aimed at the farming sector and the farm products CF&I Steel would have been good for, done in such a way that it gave... More

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
