A tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary, humanitarian, ambassador and one of the world’s greatest explorers, the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre showcases the Aoraki Mount Cook region, its people and its place in the universe. Designed to educate and entertain, the centre features a spectacular state-of-the-art 3D Mount Cook Magic movie (Chinese & Japanese headset translations available), the world's southern most digital dome Planetarium, documentaries and a Museum which documents the pioneering heart of the region and features the impressive Hillary Gallery.
