The mountaineering institute has a good collection of the mountaineering related tools/ equipment etc for display. It is highly informative and a must visit place. History of this institute and the list of successful mountaineers are also displayed in this institute.

Although the exhibit was interesting, they were dust filled, rendering some exhibits awful to look at.

Located inside the zoo.Lots and lots of information and tidbits in this one building. Anyone with an interest would highly enjoy themselves. No extra charges for this as it's included in the zoo entry ticket fare.
