Terrific. Film over Mt Cook and surrounds is definitely worth seeing.

Although the displays were small, it gave a great overall view of the history of early white settlement. Especially the early female mountaineers.

Very small museum, few activities btut interesting.
Go and watch 'Hilary on Everest' at their cinema and be inspired. Then have a beer overlooking Mt Cook.
Very good museum, also the different movies that can be seen. A very good alternative for a rainy day at Mount Cook.
