The Matterhorn museum traces the history of the growth and development of Zermatt. Here you will also find details about the first ascent, and the tragedy that followed on the mountain in 1865.
The museum depicts the story of the events when Edward Whymper, along with 8 other men scaled the Matterhorn, and met with a tragic accident on the way down. The rope that gave way and led to the death of 4 of them is on display. The museum also displays how Zermatt has evolved over the years, and how life in the village used to be a century ago. It also shows how the art of mountaneering has developed since that horrifying accident, displaying various tools of mountain climbing that have been used for various purposes over the years.
