Denali Legacy: New Exhibit at UA Museum

Date Posted: May 18, 2013       Categories: 49 History

Today the UA Museum of the North in Fairbanks opens its new exhibit, “Denali Legacy: 100 Years on the Mountain.” The exhibit, which runs through April 2014 and was created in partnership with the National Park Service, explores the journey of the first expedition to summit the mountain through the original journals of those climbers.

   See artifacts from the 1913 expedition: the camp stove, a Eucharist set, and the climbers’ diaries.
   Learn how equipment from the last century compares to today’s technology.
   Hear saws and axes cutting into ice, feet crunching on snow, wind, and other sounds of Denali.
   Examine a scale model of the mountain and explore the 100-year history of routes and climbers.
