History

The Buell Children's Museum is a part of The Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center which opened in 1972, with funding provided by the Economic Development Administration and Pueblo County.

In 1982, an expansion, funded by Puebloan Helen T. White, added three galleries, a gift shop and a small precursor children’s museum.

In 2000, a further expansion added the 12,000 square-foot, two-level Buell Children's Museum and the Jackson Sculpture Garden. The Buell Children’s Museum offers 7,500 square feet of interactive gallery space, a theater, a café and a gift shop.

Exhibits

  • The Reilly Family Gallery offers changing, hands-on exhibitions.
  • Sensations is a high-tech, multi-sensory exhibit in which visitors activate lights, sound clips and videos.
  • The El Pomar Magic Carpet Theater allows visitors to watch a program or star in their own theatrical production.
  • The Artrageous Studio allows visitors to create arts & crafts.
  • The Buell Baby Barn has activities for those under four, in a barnyard theme.
  • Awards

    In 2002 Child Magazine recognized the museum as the number two arts-related children’s museum in the country.

    In 2004, the museum was named the winner of the Award of Excellence in Arts & Humanities by the El Pomar Foundation.
