Musée Alpin
Enter this whitewashed, early-20th-century Belle Époque museum to explore the fascinating history of Alpine mountaineering and winter sports. Decked out on two floors, the museum lets visitors trace back to when the earliest explorers climbed Mont Blanc in 1786. Through photos, videos, and intriguing personal accounts, you can journey through the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and up to the formation of today’s slick resorts. A stark contrast to the adrenaline-fueled slopes rising from the valley, Musée Alpin offers a peaceful oasis for guests to appreciate the pioneers of Alpine exploration. Witnessing the basic equipment used on such journeys leaves one in deep appreciation of the daring that was required of the very first climbers.
