horno3 (Furnace 3) in Monterrey -- a giant city park and man-made riverwalk, converted from a former industrial wasteland of abandoned steel mills. Nice to see thousands of people using such an effective public space, beautified and reclaimed from what could have been a disaster. We went ziplining and rappelling through the catwalks, towers and inner works of the old... More

I decided to try the canopy adventure tour at Museo del Acero Horno3 and thought I would post about it on Trip Advisor because I have not seen any other reviews on this activity. And its worth writing about! You take a freight elevator up about two thirds of the way to the top of the plant and then you... More

I got impressed with this museum, it's one of the coolest places I've ever been. My father and I had great conversations with the museum guides about the history behind the steel industry in Mexico, they were very helpful and friendly, explaining everything and answering all of our questions. The views at the top of the building are as awesome... More

I'm going to be honest here... I'm not a museum kind of person, but this museum in particular was very interesting. You have the option to take a guide if you want, they are students doing internship and mine had a very dull voice to be honest, also my husband was very excited about the place so he kept asking...

Just the thought of what was done here is amazing. They took an old steel mill, gutted it, and created a wonderful museum dedicated to steel and its production. The problem: you MUST go around with a guide, who explains every minute detail. You may not wander around by yourself, linger, etc., rather follow a guide. I found it off... More

You must allow yourself at least 4 hours to see everything. Very good for the kids in the interactive area. For my part I wanted to be in contact with that impressive piece of modern industry. Very good view on the top. You will even find there a fine restaurant.

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. With its blast furnaces and high chimney towers. One thing I remember most was that early in the morning you could see a blue flame coming out of one of this chimneys.... More

A very interesting structure and more information about the process of manufacturing steel than most people would ever want to know, as well as related history, presented in a mostly clear and entertaining fashion. The walkway on top of the structure offers a great view of the city.

This is one of the best science museums I've been to so far. It's very well set. It's essentially a restored old steel mill which was completely restored for display purposes, and you get to walk all around it with different exhibits all related to the process in which steel is made. The exhibitions are very well designed and maintained.... More
