Though the museum was developed as a high-altitude warfare school initially, it was later set up to commemorate the first summit of Indian Army to Kanchenjunga in 1997. The museum houses excellent displays of modern warfare, mountaineering equipment and gear used in mountains by the Indian Army. Other expeditions like the first successful expedition to the Everest have been given a due place here. The museum is a symbol of respect for the Indian Army and shows how the soldiers spend their lives while guarding the borders of the nation. Some of the equipment housed here includes rope, grappling tool etc. One can also learn about the usage and function of these from the information provided on the plaques kept beneath the displays.
