If you like hiking an the history of folks hiking Mt. Everest then you will probably enjoy this. Otherwise if you have to skip because you have walked so much at the zoo, skip in clean conscious

I could never imagine such information available to us in India. The museum is very informative including the knowledge on kind of things taken for trekking like shoes, coats, goggke, trekking instruments and historical information on trekking n mountaineers
