Hillary's Diary

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 15 May 2013

Sixty years ago today, Edmund Hillary was making his way up Mt Everest as part of a British expedition to conquer the world's tallest peak. It's a journey which was to make history when he reached the top of the world on 29 May 1953, and it was recorded first in a small notebook which is currently on display in the Auckland Museum.
