New Exhibit: Mountaineering in Glacier

A new exhibit at the Museum at Central School in Kalispell traces the rich history of mountaineering in Glacier National Park.

Open now through March of 2013, the exhibit traces the adventure-filled history of mountain climbing and hiking in Glacier National Park, along with the activities of the exhibit’s creator, the Glacier Mountaineering Society. The display is part of an on-going partnership with the First Best Place Task Force’s Discovery Square in Columbia Falls and the Museum at Central School in Kalispell.

Mountaineering in Glacier offers an in-depth look at the history of mountaineering in Glacier through a video presentation, photographs, old newspaper stories and a rock wall built to display the gear used for mountaineering.

An opening reception for the exhibit will occur on Friday, May 4 from 5-7 p.m.
