Pueblo is the hometown of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. This memorial honors each of these men with a life-size statue, and includes the engraved names of 3,400 other recipients. Visitors can learn the stories behind each name with a computer database and display inside the Convention Center. The database also features the stories of local veterans who are commemorated on the newly built Veterans Bridge, which sits adjacent to the Convention Center parking lot.

This nationally top-ranked Children’s Museum in the country is a high-energy, interactive, artistic adventure. With tons of hands-on activities and the Baby Buell Barn, kids of all ages (and adults, too!) will be entertained until exhaustion.

Memorial is professionally managed by Global Spectrum and in the heart of Historic Downtown Pueblo.  With 1,600 seats, state of the art lighting and sound system, Memorial Hall is the premier entertainment facility in Pueblo.    

El Pueblo History Museum showcases the city's history and the region's many cultural and ethnic groups. The property includes a re-created 1840's adobe trading post and plaza, and the archaeological excavation site of the original 1842 El Pueblo trading post.  

Pueblo, Colorado is the location for this innovative undertaking – and rightfully so – Pueblo is known as the Home of Heroes. The community boasts the unique distinction as being the home of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once remarked, after bestowing the Medal of Honor upon Raymond G. “Jerry” Murphy, “What is it in the water out there in Pueblo … all you guys turn out to be heroes.”  The Center's mission stems from the desire for all generations to understand and never lose sight of sacrifices made by civilians and veterans alike to elevate America as the greatest Country in the world.  

Witness a relic of American industry by visiting this treasure, which sits across the Interstate from the still-pulsing steel mill. Blessed with amazing archives and artifacts from everything to former coal town maps to medical equipment, this museum captures a quintessential American story of immigration, industrialization, innovation and conflict.

An impressive tribute to pilots and planes of years past, this museum preserves, restores and displays military aircraft and artifacts that historically represent America’s finest moments in the air.

The building at this location is the only remaining firehouse in Pueblo that housed horse-drawn fire equipment and one of two remaining that has the famous brass pole still intact. It was “home” to the valiant men who served with the distinguished Hose Company No. 3. The building was erected in 1881 and the last fire alarm was sounded on March 9, 1979. The building continues its fire-related service to the community through the backing of a fire museum. A wealth of information and pictures, as well as antique fire engines, hose carts and other memorabilia are on display.  

One of America’s castles, the Rosemount Museum was once the house of the Thatcher Family – one of Pueblo’s founding families. The 37-room home is made of Colorado pink volcanic stone and was designed by Victorian architect Henry Hudson Holly of New York City.

The Pueblo Railway Museum is a program of the Pueblo Railway Foundation ("PRF"). The mission is historic preservation of railroad equipment and history. The ultimate goal is to promote and foster an interest in railroading, the study and preservation of railroad history, the impact of the railroad on the history of Pueblo and the growth of the United States and related subjects for the education and satisfaction of all.
