This part talks about the hitory of the steel industry in Mexico. It has it has information along with old photos, video, safety gear, tools and machine parts since the year of 1900. This part is good for those who like history. This is on the first floor (nivel 1 on the map).

Galeria del Acero (Steel Galery)

This is like a science center. It has 99 interactive exibitions about what steel is made of and how its made and transported. This is also on the first floor (nivel 1).

There is also a gift shop first floor (nivel 1) called on the map Tienda de souvenirs. There is also a 40 meter inclined elevator (may no be good for those with a fear of heights) to the third floor which has a good of the Fundidora Park and Monterry.
