At the observatory itself, a brand new museum, Extreme Mount Washington, just opened. It "delivers the science and excitement of a Mount
Washington winter to summer visitors of all ages through high-tech,
hands on exhibits. [Visitors can] learn how rime ice forms, pilot a snowcat, see how
Mount Washington Observatory scientists observe and record the infamous
conditions and more. Get a taste for life in the alpine zone, no ice
axes required!" (Learn more about it in this recent Boston Globe article.)
