We visited the Sloss Furnaces with two children, ages 6 & 7. At first it didn't seem that engaging, but after the rather dated video in the beautiful Visitor's Center, we started to explore. They were in the process of decorating for Christmas, but other...More

I was there several years ago. If you're into touring an old steel mill, this place is exceptional. It's well laid out, with good signage.

The place itself is neat but I would have to say I'm looking forward to visiting during the day. The haunted house was cool, but pricey. More interested in the history than the haunted house. The haunted house is your regular run of the mill....More
