  • We felt the Museum more as a pastime. Dirty showcases strung it himself with photos of famous mountaineers (China is strongly represented). Old climbers are almost somewhat Loveless draped utensils, clothes of different tribes were interesting to look at.

  • Loved this place. Built by Nepalis to honor and showcase mountaineering and local culture. Best place to learn about all the ethnic diversity in Nepal and learn about the mountaineering culture. They also featured mountaineering cultures from other regions of the world. Neat place, well kept grounds and museum, a must visit! Very informative!
  • It's a popular tourist destination in Pokhara. The Museum is dedicated to mountains , the mountain people and environment and to mountaineers and is one of the best museum of this kind in the world. Well worth a trip to see the original mountaineer equipment. worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare.
  • Surprisingly quite a sophisticated museum with modern architecture. We walked from Lakeside Pokhara for about 45 minutes which was nice to see more local neighbourhoods but taking a taxi would be efficient and cheap if you prefer. Museum had great audio/visual and physical artifacts. We got to learn about the different people of the regions, the history of mountains with stories of first ascents, the geology, flora and fauna of the Himalayas and much more. It's a great place to spend a half day learning!
  • The mountain museum is brilliantly planned. Full of information about the Himalayas. Includes details of all the people who live in and around the mountains. Many exhibits. Great for all ages. Fantastic views when the clouds clear.
  • While your Pokhara visit, don’t miss a chance to visit Mountain Museum that exhibits, records, documents and chronicles the past and also shows the present development in field of mountain and mountaineering.  It is built by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), which is funded by tourism club, mountaineering association and individual donor around the world.
