If you go there, don’t miss… 

The Big Melt – One of Magna’s most impressive features that can be seen and heard from practically every part of the building. Showcasing several times throughout the day, the show is set around 'E' furnace - one of the original electric arc furnaces, unused since the days of Sheffield's booming steel industry.
