9,000 Industrial Tourists Come to MMK

UrBC, Magnitogorsk, August 19, 2019. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) keeps working on its industrial tourism project where everyone can have a guided tour of the plant’s production site; so far, nearly 9,000 people have visited the premises as tourists.

According to MMK’s Information & PR Department, their industrial tourism project took off last October. As a matter of fact, the plant was open to visitors even before that, as partners, customers, equipment and raw stuff suppliers, and representatives of other metallurgical enterprises all came to the country’s leading metallurgical company’s production site. There were also guided tours for school students within the framework of MMK’s job counseling programs.

‘However, we only adopted a systematic approach to these visits when four custom-made, exciting guided tours were designed for everyone from the outside. The industrial tourism project is part of Magnitogorsk’s socioeconomic development strategy for 2018-2025. Magnitogorsk is also part of Rostourism’s federal industrial tourism program’s cluster for 2019-2025,’ the company says.

The tours cover Russia’s largest blast furnace shop, the unique Mill5000, and MMK Museum with its photographs, artifacts, personal paraphernalia, and scaled models of production facilities. There are two special tours for children in the 6-15 age group.

You can sign up for the guided tours on the company website https://mmk-tour.ru or over the phone +7 (3519) 25-11-40.
