“Mt Cook reveals all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Very interesting with lots of information well displayed and easy to follow. Some of the information was harrowing in so far as it was sad because of all those that have lost their lives to these mountains.

“Nice design”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Worth a visit if only to see the interior design and the view from the large picture window. Other than that, it does what it sets out to do - informs visitors about Mount Cook!
