Weather Discovery Center

Experience the wonders of weather hands on.

The Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center is an interactive science museum that brings the wonder of the atmosphere right to your fingertips! Explore the science of climate and weather through fun, interactive exhibits like the air cannon, flow tank and wind room. Plus, meet and interact with the hardy observers living and working in the summit weather station high atop Mount Washington through a twice daily live video link.

Made possible by a collaboration between the Mount Washington Observatory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Forecast Systems Laboratory (NOAA-FSL), the mission of the Weather Discovery Center is to enhance awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the atmosphere, its complexity, its impact on the human experience, and the many ways in which atmospheric phenomena are observed and interpreted.
