When you visit Volacano National Park on Big Island don't miss this beautiful galery of art located close to visitor centre. You can find there only local, original art and handcraft of local artists. If you are looking for original souvenir from Hawaii, you would find it there. I did!

When my husband and I visited the Big Island of Hawaii one of the places to visit on my list was volcano park. The whole island was a one of a kind experience since there were so many different biomes on one island. Volcano park and this island are definitely a must see for science and nature lovers.

What a gem this was in a little, historic building near the Visitor's Center at the Volcano Park. We decided to stroll over to it because we had some time on our hands and I ended up getting gifts for just about all the family members birthdays! The variety of works here - from prints to wood prints to wood... More

Seek this out. Tucked next to the visitor center, it features local artists. Most of the art was out of my price range, but I kept looking and found some well-priced block and photographic prints, plus some kapa that was lovely. Would love to come back if I ever hit the lottery.

Don't go in here, you'll be sorry! Tons of talent housed in one place. And very nice people, to boot!

We really enjoyed browsing through the local art works at the Volcano Art Centre. We managed to find a few bargains - one lovely print by a local artist, and one pair of Koa Wood earrings. Definitely worth the visit, especially if it's raining outside.

I enjoyed this shop. This was my second visit and a good place to relax after hiking. They had many gifts in price ranges a little steep for my budget and a few that were perfect. I thing that will depend on the availability of gift items.many were from the local area but definitely not all. Friendly staff. I got... More

This gallery is a change of pace after seeing the volcanoes, hiking, etc. You can stop in and look for free - purchase if you want (and can afford it). It has a wide variety of volcano themed art stretching to representations of the godess Pele. The building it is in is an earlier iteration of the Volcano House lodge...doesn't... More

A pure delight for the eyes! If you love refinement and creativity, you will find quite a few things you wish you could afford and admire in your home! It was our favourite art gallery in all Hawaii. Great creativity. Many items inspired by volcanoes. We liked the diversity : themes, artists, prices, materials …

This gallery combines local artists big and small with a penchant for putting Hawaiian themes in various mediums; frequently these include the local koa wood, the ocean, Hawaiian culture, and the volcano. When we visited there were excellent specimens of glass art which alternated between mimicking ocean waves and lava. The entire building reminded you of an old NPS cabin... More
