Could have a few more exhibits on mountain sports but the historical and geoscientific info presented is great. The movie is a must see.

I took my grandchildren aged 12 and 10 during the school holidays. Museums can be daunting to kids, but the lady volunteer administrator gave them a clipboard with a treasure hunt questionnaire. They loved it and learned quite a bit in the process. There's plenty there for the grown ups too! Entry price is miniscule.

Nothing special, but cute.
Very small and just a few things that shows about the history of the city.
Is cheap. So is worthy.

Worth a look for a "donation" entry fee. The video of the grumpy bear trying to get into the bear proof rubbish bin was amusing.
