About the Museum
The American Mountaineering Museum opened in February 2008 as North America’s first museum devoted to the stories and achievements of American mountaineers. Located at 710 10th Street in Golden, Colorado, the Museum takes visitors through the historic early days of mountaineering adventure from the use of hemp rope and hobnail boots, to the high tech gear of the present day. Topics include mountaineering heroism, gear, culture, high peaks, safety, climate change, inspiration and art. The American Mountaineering Museum is a joint venture between the Colorado Mountain Club and the American Alpine Club.
