Monterrey is often recognized by its steel industry now almost gone. One of the pillars that help this city grow and expand was the Fundidora Monterrey steel mill.

This museum is not only a great historical resource telling the story of the area's steel industry but is located in what used to be a working foundry! It's a very cool place for this reason alone but the exhitbits are interesting and mostly in both English and Spanish. Neat little gift shop also.

Monterrey is an industrial city and one of its old plants was "Fundidora" like Smelting Steel so this is an interesting visit to learn about how Steel used to be produced

The tour of the steel industry and history in and around Monterrey is very good. The guides are exciting and knowledgeable and love questions as they are very interactive. The scenery from the top of the furnace is spectacular!
