“A tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary, humanitarian, ambassador and one of the world's greatest explorers.”

The Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre centre showcases the Aoraki Mount Cook region, its people and its place in the universe.

The centre's 126-seat custom-designed theatre is the world's only theatre with 2D, 3D and a Digital Dome Planetarium, contained within the same space. Cutting edge technology allows the 2D screen to raise up for storage while the 3D screen is in use and the Digital Dome Planetarium to lower into place when required.

In the foyer of the theatre you'll find our museum showcasing the history of the Mount Cook region through transport, climbing, The Hermitage Hotel and pioneer extraordinaire, Sir Edmund Hillary himself.
