Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum

Colorado just moved up my list of ‘places I need to visit sooner rather than later.’ In addition to the stunning scenery, laid back lifestyle, and abundance of 14ers, Colorado is now home to a state-of-the-art mountaineering museum. Now, that’s cool.

The Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum (BWAMM) opened its doors in February 2008 in Golden, Colorado. The BWAMM offers a 135-square-foot scale model of Mount Everest, an actual rock fragment from the Matterhorn, a port-a-ledge that you can climb into, and a number of interactive and educational exhibits on mountain weather, culture, art, technology, photography, and climate change.

The BWAMM is named for Bradford Washburn, the famed mountaineer, photographer, and founder of the Boston Museum of Science.

If anyone has had the opportunity to visit, please let us know how it is!
