New Exhibit Items

Recently the American Mountaineering Museum acquired some exciting new items. Jim Whittaker's Everest summit boots made their way here and are now on display in the Whittaker case on the museum floor! These huge rugged LOWA boots are pretty amazing weighing in at about 3 lbs each! Whittaker will be at the museum this Friday October 23rd for an Eddie Bauer presentation and Mountainfilm tour! Don't miss it! Click here for details!

We also received a film cassette from Bradford Washburn's huge Fairchild camera. This 10 lb beauty will be on display in the hallway case just outside of the museum in the coming month. As I hold the 10lb cassette, I can only imagine what wonderful photos were taken from it and how heavy the main Fairchild camera was as he hung out of that plane! 50 lbs!

Come on by and check out these great new items on display!!
