Fodor's Review

To get a sense of life in this high-altitude region and the risks involved in climbing, visit the Matterhorn Museum, a sunken village of chalets, mazots, and dwellings depicted as an archaeological site that visitors walk through, experiencing different periods of time along the way. The personal accounts of local docents liven up the displays of antiquated equipment, clothing, and historical documents about those who lived and climbed here. There is a farmer's cottage,

hotel, and church interior, plus stuffed and mounted animals.
