The New Matterhorn Museum Opens in December

ZERMATT, SWITZERLAND.- Zermatt can now lay claim to one more major attraction: The museum will tell the exciting story of the Matterhorn - from its origins in Africa and the terribly dramatic first ascent to the present day. However, it also tells the story of Zermatt, the small farming village that became an internationally famous health resort.

The museum doesn't do so using glass display cases but by mean of tangible experiences. This is because visitors don't pass through a dull museum, but through a sunken village that is being unearthed by archeologists. Zermatt in the 19th century; Zermatlantis.... Witness the first ascent, discover that the Matterhorn wasn't really "made in Switzerland" (but Africa!); enjoy a video show about this mountain to top them all. Embark upon a voyage of discovery with a multilingual audio guide and allow yourself to be fascinated by what Zermatt has to offer besides the Matterhorn!
