About
History of Horno Alto Nº 3, Horno Alto Nº 3 was designed by Arthur G. McKee & Co. from Cleveland, Ohio. The installation began in October 1965 and it began operating in January 1968, with the capacity to produce 1,500 to 2,000 tons of cast iron per day. It had the most advanced technologies, notable among which were the electronic programmer of raw materials and the automatic system for the control of furnace combustion. With the beginning of operations of Horno Alto Nº 3, the Monterrey Foundry reached a production of a million tons of steel per year, which made it the most important steel mill in Mexico.

Very interesting old foundry museum. You get to walk through a lot of historical vignettes and through most of the old foundry itself including the acero. Easy to spend several hours here. There is a restaurant and cafe in the museum as well as others scattered throughout the park. It is nice to see that they have cleaned up the foundry site to the point where lush gardens and trees are able to grow again.

This is a great place and it explains the process of mining and smelter and all that. This was a great smelter that employed a lot of people in the town and was a sought after place to work. Not sure why the steel plant was shut down. Anyway they have made this into a great museum and have maintained the whole thing. One can go up the elevator to the top of the smelter and look at a panorama of the city. Come down and one can get a real video and a sound and light show of the belly of this beast.

The exhibits are self explanatory and fortunately everything has an English translation

I loved the museum in centro, but this one was really boring. Too much if scientists experiment type of stuff.

This is a very unique museum, with perfect facilities to enjoy it. It has air conditioning all over the place and makes your visit so enjoyable. One can understand the process needed to produce steel right from the very place it was processed. Also, it helps understand how this industry contributed to the wealth of what the city is today. Monterrey would have never become what it is if this company had not existed.

Interesting tour to know the history of the main industry of Monterrey. It is advisable to enter the museum for at least 1 hour and to the oven tour. Excellent panoramic view. If you have time you must have dinner at the restaurant.
