The Mountaineering Museum opened in February 2008 and is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated to preserving the culture and history of mountaineering.
Visitors experience the world of mountain and rock climbing with exhibits on climate, science, cultures and humanities as they related to mountaineering. It also honors the achievements of mountaineers.
Learn about mountaineering from a movie at the entrance and then move through several interactive exhibits. The museum also has a section on mountain safety.
