Owner description: 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.

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!

Nice museum it's a great way to understand a very important part of the history of Monterrey. You can visit museum in around 2-3hrs max.

El Horno 3 is undoubtedly the most interesting venue at the Parque Fundidora with the museum at the base of the structure and added attractions like the Carbon Elevator ride and the excellent restaurant El Lingote located on the upper level.

The museum Horno 3 which is inside the Fundidora Park is very interactive, the show is great the view at the top of the oven is awsome. This is where they used to melt the iron to create steel. The tour is very instructing. Because it is inside the Fundidora Park which is huge, make sure you know where you are parking (there are over 10 parking garages) otherwise you will walk for miles before you get to the museum.
