We learnt a lot about the first successful climb of the Matterhorn in the 1840s. by Edward Wymper, an English man, with a small group of local climbers. He is commemorated by a blue plaque on the wall of the Monte Rosa hotel in Zermatt's central square, from where he set out on his epic climb.
Only slight drawback is that the museum only open 3pm-7pm so a Museum visit must be carefully timed. Very distinctive glass globe building on the main square opposite the Monte Rosa, shows cleasrly on webcams.
