  • The Museum is awesome for either children or adults. It Has many interactive activities and touring it is an experience. It Has two shows that Are worth a lot of grief (the land and the oven). I Recommend the following: If you are very nailed in physics and chemistry, stop more time in the interactive area; If your inclination is more for the historical data, start with that area.

  • The Fundidora or melting company was one of Monterrey’s top industries. Now, as a park and attraction has become a must visit place. Visitors, both foreigners and local can find an array of places and activities for all ages. The museum of steel portraits what that company was all about when it operated normally.
  • The museum has many exciting features. There is interactive place where you are able to experience the many facets of steel making as well as the history of the steel furnace. There is also a laboratory that children and adults can play scientists! The place has an elevator that takes you to the top and a fancy restaurant as well!
  • Well organized and explains very well the history of Fundidora Park and it's workers. Very nostalgic. There are exhibitions about minerals also. You can explore the oven and go to the top.
  • Incredible place. If you have the time don't hesitate on reading all the history of the steel industry in Mexico. If you go, the show of the "Alto horno" is incredible. Don't think it twice and go to the viewpoint above the compound. There's also a really nice exhibition of technology and science involved in the steel industry.
  • The place and surroundings are amazing. The museum is also good and different. the only one problem is that sometimes they close it without any notification. I claimed about it ; they were friendly but they didn't improve it. Be sure that it will open before you plan visiting the place.
