Artifacts include the fabled Schoening ice axe, the instrument used on K2 in 1953 to save five climbers from tumbling to their deaths, and items from the collection of the museum's namesake, the late Bradford Washburn, a pioneer in aerial photography and mountaineering. There's also a massive scale model of Mount Everest, plus a prefabricated rock crevasse on which visitors can test their skills. The price of admission is $4.50 for children and $6.50 for adults.
