Mountaintop Weather Museum Undergoes Transformation

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.
