Owner description: The Matterhorn Museum – Zermatlantis offers insight into the development of Zermatt. It shows the triumph and tragedy surrounding the first ascent of the Matterhorn. Here one is immersed in the mountain world of past generations: One sees how the people lived in Zermatt in the 19th century and shudder at the sight of the broken rope from the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865. Four of the seven climbers lost their lives at that time. And one looks in wonder at “Theo,” the 16th century mercenary who did not succeed in crossing the Theodul Pass.

Not a great museum by any means, but if you're in Zermatt, you should take a look. Nice films in the Matterhorn room, as well as recreation of life in Zermatt centuries ago. Nice to see the gear from various hiking trips, and a real treat if you're a mountaineering fan, but a short visit is plenty!

If you have a hour or so to kill on a not so nice day this is a reasonable thing to do. However, I feel that it is very expensive for what it is.

nice museum on the history of the matterhorn, the people, way of life and the history of the climbers. Some cool exhibits and worth spending a couple hours learning some of the history of the area.

They best part of this museum is to see the progression of alpine climbing from the first time Matterhorn was summited to today.

The staff are very friendly and it's free with your half fare card.
All exhibits are extremely interesting and easy to understand even though most detail is in German. It is well worth spending the time watching the film about the Matterhorn and the first climb.
