Just had the pleasure of visiting this very interesting museum located in the Bessemer historic district. I was very interested in the strike of 1927 and this museum had a great display of artifacts that showcased the importance of steel in southern colorado. If you are ever in the area I would recommend it.

I hope the IWW makes a resurgence again in Colorado we need them now more than in 1927.

I'd like to visit it sometime. Do they touch on the Ludlow Massacre at all? A century later there are still a number of parallels of views about southern Europeans then and southern Americans now in the United States, proving that we, as a nation, are very slow learners.

They do touch upon it. The museum has some great artifacts and exhibits I also took a look through the archives they store but if you want to go through them you need an appointment. Its really crazy to think that Walsenberg and Pueblo were once on the cutting edge of labor movements its fascinating very different history than Colorado Springs.
