A little off the beaten path, but well worth the stop. There is a small visitor's center with a museum, gift shop and orientation video to start, and then a guided tour of the actual furnace area. There are three stories of stairs to navigate during the tour, and only the visitor's center is climate controlled. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable, and we learned a great deal about early iron making practices.
