Update from the Summit New Museum Project

Behind the sceens work

This was my first week up on the Summit in a while and I got a chance to get down to the New Summit Museum to get some of the IT infrastructure put into place. All I could say is Wow, what a change since last time I was in the new space. The carpet is all in and looks fantastic. Most of the lighting is in place and just needs some final touches. This new Summit Museum was designed with all state of the art LED lighting to keep electrical costs down while providing the guest an incredible experience.

I spent Sunday morning installing and setting up some of the necessary IT infrastructure to allow all of the new high tech exhibits to be managed remotely. I understand this connectivity is going to allow the Museum Attendant to turn the exhibits on and off and manage other functions.

I just can’t wait for the Mount Washington Auto Road to get clear enough for the exhibits to start coming up and installed. I’ve already got my name on the top of the list to ‘test’ the Snow Cat simulator.
