Excellent information

Highly recommended a trip to the information centre if you ate at Mount Cook Village. It is like a small museum and information centre all in one. A lot of history of the area and mountain. Well presented.

Well laid out and informative

Excellent displays including 3D maps of the area. Fascinating and depressing books of obituaries of people who've lost their lives climbing on the mountain.

A must-visit before heading to the mountains here
Mar. 2021
The visitor centre is a half-day activity in itself! We visited to check which walks we should do, and ended up spending over an hour in there reading through all of the information panels. There is so much history to learn about, and I had a rainy day I'd definitely spend some time in the visitor centre. We didn't find the person at the desk overly helpful on which walks we should try which was a little disappointing. We were very excited to start the hikes, and unfortunately she didn't share the same passion and was very bland about explaining what we could do around the area. Apart from that little mishap, the centre was great. You can also pick up some great t-shirts etc from there.

Amazing Hooker Valley
Mar. 2021
Amazing, easy going trek (3 hr return); you will be rewarded with some unforgettable views of Mt Cook. The 3 suspension bridges are a bonus with the river running ferociously underneath. All through the valley itself is gorgeous.

Well-kept and presented the centre offers a good view of Mt Cook itself. There are interesting graphics panels about the history of the township and of mountaineering.
