  • Outside the main Museum in the park is a memorial monument to those who lost their lives when mountain climbing in the Himalayas, It won a water system outside the Museum with fish! Inside the building there are many large rooms, among other things, you will see a video of the Himalayas. Costumes of the areas at the foot of the mountains can be found in the stands as well as bergsbestigarnas stock and equipment over the years. Big pictures on a wall at vårldens ten highest mountains are posted!

  • 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!
  • A very educational museum which offers comprehensive information about mountains, different ethnic groups and mountaineers. Recently there’s an exhibition about global warming too. Truly inspirational and a must go place for tourists who would like to have a deeper understanding about Nepal.
  • If you're planning to visit the International Mountain Museum, you will find a lot about mountains and mountaineers. Lot of information has been on display about the rocks, different peaks of the Himalayan range, the people living there, the techniques used to climb and trek. There's a huge section of different studies and theories that has been revealed. All over, if you are keen to know about the Himalayan ranges and the records by different people, you must visit.
  • Museum has a lot of interesting information especially for people who love new experience.One of the best museums I've ever been to. It has kept everything historical related to mountaineering in Nepal. Offers wide variety of displays and additional information. 3D model of some great Himalayan ranges on Nepal, as well as photos that make every mountain lover love this place.They have beautiful garden to relax. Museum includes innumerable relics related to various castes of Nepal.
  • So I came here to see what it was about and thought I will leave it within an hour. I found myself going through all the histories, name of the mountains and all the displays and taking notes and it took me about three and a half hour to leave the place. It was quite amazing and very knowledgeable. There is a souvenir shop which was unfortunately closed. I was wondering about what could have been found there. Overall, anyone who loves the mountains, I will suggest to visit here. Amazing.
