Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, Colorado, sits the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum. The 3,500-square-foot museum is a joint partnership of the Colorado Mountain Club, the American Alpine Club and the National Geographic Society. This one-of-a-kind facility will allow visitors to live the ascent of the world’s most inspiring mountains through:
- Educational displays, including a 135-square-foot scale model of Mount Everest and the Khumbu region - one of only two of its kind in the world
- Interactive exhibits on Colorado’s highest mountains, what it’s like to sleep on a mountain face, and how mountains have inspired art
- Sights of breathtaking photos and climbers’ personal stories that enrich the learning experience
- One of the world’s largest libraries dedicated to mountaineering research and education
