The Matterhorn Museum was a pleasant surprise. The Museum appears petite from the outside because its exhibits are down below the surface. In addition to learning more about the early climbs on the Matterhorn and seeing some of the frighteningly fragile gear those climbers used, this museum is a good look at life as it once was in the area.
Recreated housing huts and animal sheds tell the story of the development of the farming village that is now Zermatt.
Our only disappointment here was the film, and that may have been our fault because we did not seek help on its timing or to learn if it was not functioning. No matter, the visit was well worth it and deserved more time than we had set aside for it.
