Dont let the fact that this is a museum about the history of steel making in Mexico housed in a restored blast furnace keep you from going to Fundadora Park and finding this wonderful museum. I was amazed at how much everyone in my group enjoyed it, Shorter versions of the Spanish signs are presented in English, you can get... More

This was very interesting. Most of the placards for the exhibits were in both English and Spanish. The ride up to the top floor was not pleasant for me because I do not like heights, but I am glad that I got to the top to see how the iron ore was processed. There was a walkway with great views,...

OK so I was not that enthusiastic about visiting a museum about steel and it's history in that city, but it turned out to be a really awesome visit! Compared to a lot of the European museums, this one is pretty interactive (one of the things I loved about their museums). You get to play around (especially the kids), then... More

Eye opening/much history & learning on what made Monterrey the industrial capital of Mexico. Love it & proud to have had uncles who worked there. Highly recommend & you won't spend much.

Everything from a really exclusive restaurant, museums, ice rink, shopping. It's the place to go with family or friends. Lots of green areas and a variety of attractions. A must visit in Monterrey.

Located in the Parque Fundidora, Horno3 is a museum that honors the city's industrial heritage. From walking inside a furnace, to scaling the heights of the stacks, this museum offers some new experiences for visitors and is a must see in Monterrey. Not to mention the boat ride to get there is loads of fun...and relaxing. And they have a... More

Very interactive and hands on for kids. (I don't have any kids). But we acted like kids and played with everything anyway. There is also good views at the top of the museum.
