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

Because we are nosey my daughters and I decided to walk beyond the visitor's center at Volcanoes National Park. We found the Volcano Art Center by accident and ended up spending over 30 minutes there. The ceramic, glass, wood. oil, jewelry and textile pieces there are all made by local artists. Many have a volcano theme. They are beautiful and... More

While visiting Volcanoes National Park, we stopped in the gallery planning to kill a few minutes and ended up staying more than an hour. So much to see! Lots of local art and some really nice affordable gifts or things to help remember your trip. The folks working there couldn't have been nicer. We had just been to the Pu'u... More

This gallery features art both large and small but all by Hawaii artists. The selection is unique and carefully selected for artistic merit and appeal to visitors and local residents. Park fees apply but since you are in the park anyway there is no additional cost. The recent addition of a gallery in Volcano Village next to the administration building... More
