PUEBLO — If you're looking for something to do with the family, Buell Children's Museum in Pueblo is re-opening its art exhibit to walk-ins, and the Adventures in Art exhibit is open to kids groups who want to make a reservation.

Since Pueblo County is now at a Level Orange on the COVID dial, some art exhibits will now be open to walk-ins starting Wednesday.

The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday and this is also the last week to catch the Adventures in Art exhibit, which opened back in July.

The exhibit features the development of art over time, starting with the pyramids, with things like mummies, sarcophagi and heads to more modern forms of art, and producing it like the printing press and stain glass.

There's a life-size mummy lid and an Egyptian wardrobe. One of the best parts of the new exhibit, kids can make their own Venetian stain glass that they can take home. They can also make things like a Shabti that used to be put into those sarcophagus.

Now, there are two-hour time slots to attend the Adventures in Art exhibit, so you must reserve ahead of time. You can call 719-295-7200 to reserve your spot. Also, all visitors over three years old must wear a mask.
