Overview

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 museum is by far the most interesting part of the Fundidora Park. It has exhibits, a smelting show, a catwalk with great views of the city. Well worth the entrance fee of $100 ($6 USD). I will come back. It is great.
