Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006, Carrie, as it is affectionately known, entices visitors to marvel at the scale and legacy of its industrial might. The guided Industrial Tour highlights the drama of the iron-making process – from the movement of raw materials to the tapping of the furnaces producing fiery molten iron – while sharing the stories of the site’s technology, its workers and their culture. Allow two hours for your tour.

Tour space is limited. Advance purchase is recommended. Tour content is recommended for ages 8+.

Please note that the Carrie Furnaces are part of a former industrial site. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather as most of the tour/workshop is outdoors. Heels and/or open-toed shoes are not permitted. At this time the site is not wheelchair accessible.

Carrie Blast Furnace Tours are offered May – October. The site is closed at all other times.
