Enjoyed learning about the different regions and their culture. Lots of great photos of the mountains. We read everything and walked thru in two hours.

The park out side of the museum provide a perfect view of the Annapurna Range. And the museum itself stores a lot of precious items from those great mountaineers. It's worth visiting. And before you leave the door, take one more look at the window on your left hand, splendid!

My second trip to Pokhara brought me back here the second time, and it proved to me again why I liked this place. I spent about 2hours plus in this place, reading each gallery again and finding myself intrigued for the second time.

My favourite section is the Mountains, where I read about the world's 10 tallest peaks (most of which are in Nepal btw), and the various expeditions to each summit. The pictures from the Japanese aviation club are especially spectacular, and of note the Korean side recently added a new section of their own, depicting the various climbers who recently conquered the major 14 peaks and 3 major poles (North, South and Mt. Everest).

What the IMM could do better is to update its hourly video presentation - it's simply a video consisting of random clips and pictures all jumbled up, one moment it talks about mountains and immediately after it shows flowers and animals. Also, the time I was there it was swarmed with at least 4 different school excursions with 100 children at least each. It makes quiet viewing and silent reading a little distracting.

This museum is a bit far from the lakeside but is definitly worth the trip there. It cost me 600 nepali rupees to go there (back and forth). the museum ground is wide and well looked after and the museum itself has lots of different section such as Geology, Animals, Mountain climbing heroes and history, and a very interesting part dedicated to the many local ethnies composing nepal with their everyday tools, houseware, costumes and traditions. i really enjoyed the visit and spent a total of 2 hours there. Plus it has a little tibetan temple inside and a superb view over the mountain through the panoramic windows. excellent
