El Pueblo Trading Post

El Pueblo History Museum

We are now closing some of our doors out of caution and care for our community. The museum is now closed to in-person visits while Pueblo is under its current level of public-health guidelines. Find more information at our Safe and Welcome page.

As we navigate this unusual holiday season, we’re here to help you shop safely for your nearest and dearest. You can shop History Colorado’s collection on Etsy, and our gift shop is planning to remain open with capacity limits and other precautions from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.


El Pueblo History Museum showcases the region’s many cultural and ethnic groups through innovative exhibits including the Borderlands of Southern Colorado and the award-winning Children of Ludlow. The property includes a re-created 1840s adobe trading post and plaza, and the archaeological excavation site of the original 1842 El Pueblo trading post.
