Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center

Top choice museum in North Conway

If you don't have time to drive to the summit of Mt Washington, but you think wild weather is cool, take an hour to explore this small but fascinating weather museum instead. Shoot an air cannon, interrupt a mini-tornado and learn why temperatures are so extremely cold atop Mt Washington. What happens when you push the red button inside the mock observatory shack? All we'll say is, hold on tight.
