MOUNT WASHINGTON, N.H. (June 20, 2014) Extreme Mount Washington sits on the top of the Northeast's highest peak, in New Hampshire, and the museum recently underwent a $1 million renovation.
The museum atop a mountain that experiences some of the worst weather in the country was transformed from a modest collection of artifacts behind glass to a modern facility packed with hands-on exhibits.
Appropriately, bad weather forced officials to move the recent ribbon-cutting ceremony indoors.
Demolishing the old museum down to the studs and rebuilding it wasn't easy, given the location and the cold, wind, ice and low visibility that consistently combine.
A photographer spent about 30 winter days at the summit to capture the photos and video footage, constructing elaborate heated cases hooked up to car batteries to keep his cameras working.
