Great little museum packed with fun and interactive exhibits. Contains a lot of photographs and actual gear used by several famous climbers. We spent an hour at the museum before heading across the street for dinner at the food trucks at Mountain Toad Brewery.

From Our Editors

The American Mountaineering Museum was inspired by and named for Bradford Washburn, a pioneer of cartography who, at the age of 88, directed an expedition that measured the true height of Mt. Everest in 1999. The museum's exhibits celebrate the courage and determination of the individuals who shaped the sport of mountaineering.

  • Size: 3,500 square feet
  • Eye Catcher: A 135-square-foot scale model of Mt. Everest, built in 1990 under Washburn's direction—only one other of its kind exists in the world
  • Don't Miss: A display of the snowshoes and other gear used by the Army's elite squad of mountaineers during WWII
  • Interactive Exhibits: At one exciting display, visitors get an inkling of what it's like to sleep on the face of a mountain
  • Different Vantage Points: Photos taken by climbers show sky-high views most people don't get to see.
  • The Building: The museum sits inside the American Mountaineering Center, which regularly hosts the nation's top climbers in its auditorium and climbing library
