Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Swiss Alps / Canton of Valais / Zermatt / Matterhorn Museum - Zermatlantis
Learn about the early climbers who reached the summit of the Matterhorn at Matterhorn Museum - Zermatlantis. Head underground to this museum, which is set up to resemble a mountain village with 14 houses as well as a church, hotel, huts, and granaries. Learn about the development of the area and the many climbers who frequent it, and see samples of the equipment and gear they use. Watch a film from the 1930s about the competition between Edward Whymper and Jean Antoine Carrel, who each attempted to reach the summit--one from the Swiss side, and one from the Italian side. The museum showcases the broken rope from the first ascent of the mountain in 1865 and one of the two stones that Swiss astronaut Claude Nicollier took from the summit and brought with him on the Space Shuttle Endeavour mission in 1993. The museum is centrally located in the village at a walkable distance from other local attractions.
