Buell Children's Museum

The Buell Children's Museum was recognized as the second best children's museum for art in the nation by Child Magazine. With innovative, hands-on exhibits focusing on the arts, science, and history, it's no wonder the Buell Children's Museum has been voted the "Best Museum in Pueblo" for over a decade!

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.

The Buell Children's Museum is a member of the Association of Children's Museums, a trade organization made up of more than 500 members. Children's museums are one of the fastest-growing segments in United States educational/cultural institutions. Over the last decade, the number of children's museums has grown by 100% annually, reaching 30 million children and their families. Children's museums rank only second to zoos among museum-related attractions in their ability to attract ethnically and culturally diverse audiences, and address the developmental needs of young children.

At the Sangre de Cristo School of Dance, we maintain a commitment to students and their families to provide:
-Professional instruction at affordable rates.

-Attention to the total development of each student regardless of their future aspirations as a dancer or latent abilities.
-Professional training to students with the desire to pursue a performing career.
-Respect for the uniqueness of the individual student so that the dance program is directed toward being a positive experience for age appropriate learning pursued in a safe environment free from embarrassment or disparagement, abusive language, intimidation, unhealthy competition, or other negative stressors.
-Use of current pedagogical knowledge, methods, and techniques known through dance medicine, scientific research, and literature to ensure safe practices.

The School of Dance offers a wide variety of classes, including and in addition to:
-Classes offered during spring, summer, and fall semesters.
-Camps offered in the summer (as of 2018).

-Master Classes taught from professional dance companies and guest artists.
