A must visit when in Monterrey. It's really impressive to see a factory converted in to a museum. The museum is really interactive. The ArcelorMittal section has really cool simulations and games that can capture the attention of both children and Adults. Most of the content in the museum is in Spanish, with a very brief summary in English. We... More

I recommend this place as a foreigner because it gives you a hint of part of the Mexican economy, it is important that you assist to the show.

This is a unique museum, very interactive, with lots of things to see and do. We had a guide who explained every single detail of the museum and spent at least 3 hours with us while we toured the museum. Didn't get to see the main show of the place, as it was closed to a private event, but we... More

We were visiting and had a guided tour, this guy was great and really showed us around. Museum exhibits part of the history of steel, the working conditions for the miners and workers, the properties of the material itself, the projected future uses. The movie is highly recomended. A very complete tour.

This place is really amazing. It's actually what used to be the real steel mill back in 1900-1986. It's placed inside Fundidora Park, which is very large and nice. Be sure you ask for "The Furnace Show" (Show del Horno), it's a magnificent show and you can walk inside the big furnace. Also, highly recommended to take the Summit Stroll... More

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
