2014 Watch Day at Fundidora Park

Fundidora Park is an industrial archaeology museum and public park in the heart of Monterrey, Mexico, that was included on the 2014 World Monuments Watch. In August 2014 Horno 3, a historic blast furnace in the park, celebrated its seventh anniversary with a series of activities for Watch Day. The event included free access to the museum, guided tours, science demonstrations, drawings exhibitions, traditional dances, and refreshments for nearly 3,000 visitors. At the closing of the program, an American Express grant and the launch of a public campaign to raise additional funds in support of the much-needed conservation work were announced.
