Very thoughtfully organized museum, giving a glimpse of what mountaineering means in Himalayas... particularly for people like us who've never gone mountaineering. So much to learn, can spend hours there.

Worth visiting and can be tagged with zoo. Camera not allowed. Tenjing Norgay memorial should be visited. One can get images and models of mountaineering equipments and idea about quest for himalayas.

OK for a short vist - sherpa related matter plus pleasant grounds. Obviously has historic significance but mostly of interest to those who like shinning up rocks etc

We new nothing about all the attempts there have been to climb Everest over the years and it was good to be able to read up on the expeditions and see the equipment that has been used It's only a small exibition...

The museum is full of history, facts and objects that have been used by famous mountaineers. It allowed us to have a deeper understanding of the tough conditions of mountaineering back 60 years ago.

Visit this place as well as the museum to know about the history.... But you have to walk a lot to visit this place...... This place is located inside the zoo area..

A glorious institution for mountaineers. Real tribute to Tenzing Norgay!! Museum displays rare artifacts of mountaineering equipments used by Tenzing and other great climbers in their Everest summit expeditions. A must visit for mountaineering enthusiasts particularly Everest lovers.
