Buell Children's Museum

210 North Santa Fe Avenue
719-295-7200

This 12,000 square-foot, two-level facility offers innovative, hands-on exhibits focusing on the arts, science and history for people ages 1 to 101.

Designed by the same architectural firm which created the original Sangre de Cristo Arts Center buildings—Hurtig, Gardner, Froelich & Barnosky—the Buell Children’s Museum is the third structure in our arts complex.

The Reilly Family Gallery offers changing, hands-on exhibitions in a bright, two-story space. Sensations is a high-tech, multi-sensory exhibit in which visitors activate lights, sound clips and video by pressing fifty separate sensors located on the floors and walls.
In the El Pomar Magic Carpet Theater visitors may watch a program on the cutting-edge projection equipment or take over the stage and star in their own theatrical production.

In the Artrageous Studio, visitors create personal masterpieces using paper, ribbon, mylar and other sparkly, gooey materials. Children under the age of four can explore and learn in the Buell Baby Barn, which offers a variety of age appropriate activities in a fun barnyard theme.

An extremely neat place for all ages. I went here frequently as a child and now I get to bring my own daughter here. They have rotating themes/exhibits, but they are always adorable, well-planned, and educational. The best part of the entire museum is the Rube Goldberg-ish ball machine in the front area. I could watch that thing for hours.

Fun place to hang out with the kids and best for eight and under, but my older kids do love to do crafts and use all the paint and recyclables to make projects. I like how they change the theme every few months.

Don't waste your money, just go to Wal-Mart and buy construction paper and then buy some dirty costumes to play in. I've been to children's museums and this is no museum. I don't understand why there are good reviews, but it may be because they're from people that have never been out of Pueblo and have nothing to compare it to.

My child always enjoys field trips here. The museum never disappoints.
