Fodor's Review

A 45-minute drive south from Leeds to Rotherham brings Yorkshire's industrial past squarely into view at Magna, a widely respected science museum housed in a former steelworks. Smoke, flames, and sparking electricity bring one of the original six arc furnaces roaring to life in a sound-and-light show. Four pavilions engagingly illustrate the use of fire, earth, air, and water in the production of steel.
