It’s an exciting time for Mount Washington Observatory.
With successful classroom education programs, distance learning, workshops, incredible trips to our mountaintop weather station, and the hands-on Weather Discovery Center in downtown North Conway, the Observatory is delivering on its educational mission like never before. Nearly 200,000 people learn about the science of climate and weather from Mount Washington Observatory each year. That is an accomplishment we are very proud of, and we thank you for helping us reach this milestone.
Today we stand at the forefront of yet another educational milestone. In just over eight months we will open the doors to the most exciting, most engaging, and most incredible indoor educational experience we have ever offered: Extreme Mount Washington.
Our current mountaintop museum, which has been in service for more than forty years, is the most visited museum in the entire state of New Hampshire. With more than 100,000 people viewing its vintage exhibits each year (most as their first and only interaction with the Observatory), we knew it was time for a more modern experience that more accurately reflects our work today.
We began soliciting grant support, and to date we have raised more than $725,000 towards the project’s $825,000 goal.
Now we’re asking for your support to help us finish the campaign and make Extreme Mount Washington a reality: Please make a tax-deductible donation today.
We are extremely proud to offer all those who give $250 or more their very own tile at the entrance to the new museum, a lasting tribute to your support for Mount Washington and the Observatory.
I hope you are as excited as I am about this incredible project. I invite you to learn more and preview the new Extreme Mount Washington by watching the video on Extreme.MountWashington.org . I think you’ll agree that it’s an exciting endeavor!
Thank you for standing with us through the years. Our work is possible because of your support!
