Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, Colorado, the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum opened its doors in February 2008 to be America’s first and only museum dedicated to the heroism, technology, culture and spirit of mountaineering.

This one-of-a-kind facility will allow visitors to live the ascent of the world’s most inspiring mountains through educational displays, interactive exhibits, breathtaking photos and climbers’ personal stories that enrich the visual experience, and one of the world’s largest libraries dedicated to mountaineering research and education. From children to weathered climbers, all visitors will find something to inspire their life’s journey. Jump a crevasse, hang out in a port-a-ledge and find your route up Mt. Everest!

The 3,500-square-foot museum is a joint partnership of the Colorado Mountain Club and the American Alpine Club.
