Two tips for this gem that is chock full of great Hawaiian art and photography. First, visit this gallery next to the Visitors Center inside the park, even if its only for 15 minutes (dare you to limit your time there to that!). Second, visit the Art Centers office in Volcano Village and take a tour through the native forest... More

There were many rooms of wonderful art and jewelry in this building plus a cultural demonstration on the porch. You will need some time to go through and see all. Still worth the time especially on a rainy day.

There was a large native sailing vessel carved and assembled from local woods. It was striking. A beautiful $1,800 piece. Pele art was all over. A favorite was the hot glass volcano works by Daniel Moe. Beautiful flowing work from study hikes through the lava fields.

Stopped in to get out of the rain. We were greeted when we walked in and told information about the building. The building itself is interesting from an historical viewpoint. The art work was spread throughout the building. It was nicely presented and not crowded. The artwork was interesting and different from the usual gallery works. Found a piece I... More

usually art stores have puffed up, dismissive staff. What a joy to see such lovely staff who talk of the art with appreciation and encourage you to enjoy it. This was a refreshing and lovely place.

We love looking at local artists work so we decided to stop here, but walking up we were a bit hesitant. However when we got inside we were amazed at all the wonderful artwork. The building is larger than it appears outside. Make sure you get through all the rooms so you don't miss anything.

Look at a list of things happening on the East side of Hawai'i and you'll see a bunch of free programs presented here. You should go and check out at least one of them. We went to a lei-making class, where we made ti leaf leis good enough to wear to the Brothers Cazimero concert later in the week. My... More
