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.

Is an incredible place as you find yourself eating in what was once part of a steelmaking process and now have made it a great place to eat for business or with your partner

I bet there are very less museums that can teach you so much about the steel. We use steel everyday, and before coming here, I knew very less or almost anything of how it arrive to use.

I didn't know what to expect, it was surprisingly good and interesting. This museum has a great way to make steel fun. I enjoyed the views you get when you take ride to the top of the furnace.
