Last Chance Exhibits at El Pueblo Museum

If you haven’t visited the El Pueblo Museum in downtown Pueblo yet, we highly recommend that you make the drive. Located on the site of the original adobe 1842 El Pueblo trading post site, the museum pays tribute to the original Santa Fe Trail trading outpost that was the first permanent building in Pueblo. 

Current premiere exhibit: Borderlands of Southern Colorado

The Arkansas River in southern Colorado once marked the border between the U.S Territories and Mexico. The Borderlands of Southern Colorado exhibit illuminates the geopolitical border history, as well as the region’s historic and ongoing borders of cultures, ethnicities, landscapes, industries, religions and identities. As the museum shares, “The river and the landscape of this site encompass a grand history: from a place of meeting between indigenous tribes to a physical border between nations, from the boundary between mountains and plains to everyday convergences of cultural and ethnic borders.”
