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.

This is a great place to visit, especially if it's your first time in Monterrey. There will be a tour guide escorting you and the elevators/lifts are really interesting. When you get to the top, you have a beautiful 360 view of the city and mountains which you're allowed to take pictures. You will also learn a lot about the history of Mexico's industrial revolution and other scientific things. Please make sure you tip your tour guide. I will be visiting this place when I return hopefully soon.

Thank Robrrr

This old blast furnace and attendant equipment has been lovingly restored to make an excellent and unique museum to a vibrant industrial past. Don't miss the 'blast furnace show' and make sure you take the 'walk to the top' which is actually a lift ride with spectacular views at the top.

The exhibition was really amazing, what a great surprise! Worth a visit if you like to see this kind of industrial shows. The Horno 3 Show is worth watching! And don't miss the visit to the top of the factory.

If you ever find yourself in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, you need to be in this location. Is inside a HUGE park with tons of things to do for visitors (national and international).
Is more than a museum, there's also a family restaurant called "Lingote de Oro" (The Golden Bar), a little pricey but still is amazing because the restaurant is on a second level, you can see the whole park while you're eating (if you decide to eat outside, there also an inside-option).
Of course the word "museum" is not the title for showcase, this is an actual museum from now-remodeled Foundry. The Foundry was one of the primary sources of revenue of the city, making one of the most profitable cities during 80's/90's. Now you can get a tour and learn more about metallurgical business.
