El Pueblo History Museum

The El Pueblo History Museum — nationally honored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services — incorporates a reconstructed and immersive 1840s trading post, an archeological site, and innovative exhibitions that explore the many cultural and ethnic groups of the region. Borderlands of Southern Colorado details the region’s complex geopolitical border history and ongoing borders of cultures, ethnicities, landscapes, industries, religions and identities. Or, visit Tamburitzans: On Tour, which explores the history and cultural tradition of Pueblo’s Tamburitzans, Croatian and Slovenian musical performance groups with deep ties to the local community. Located in downtown Pueblo, the museum is just steps from the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, which includes one of the longest paintings in the world among many other art pieces, boat rides, restaurants, shops, and entertainment.
