NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) — The Mount Washington Observatory plans to show its renovated museum on the New Hampshire mountaintop in June.

Extreme Mount Washington will show visitors what winter's like at the mountain. Through hands-on, high-tech exhibits, the museum will present a sampling of the "World's Worst Weather."

Designed by Jeff Kennedy Associates of Somerville, Mass., the new museum will feature a user-controlled flat-panel display showing "clear day" views from the summit in all seasons; an interactive Snowcat simulator; and a recreation of the 1930s observatory, including the anemometer used to record the famous 231 mph wind.

Exhibit components are being constructed this winter, and will be transported to the summit for installation as soon as the Mt. Washington Auto Road opens this spring.
