Go to the Jaggar Museum for the best view of the crater. Check out the educational and interactive exhibits.
The museum gives you a lot of information on how the volcanoes are formed and how unpredictable they are. The Kilauea Caldera is steaming and there are steaming vents all around the area, making it seem possible that the volcano could erupt at any time. It is open 24/7 and they say at night you can actually see the glow... More
Great place to visit $10 fee per car was well worth it. Museum was interesting but the actual glowing crater when it gets dark steals the show. Piece of advice bring warm clothes it's cold there when the sun goes down.
this a must see on Hawaii's big island...the scenery is just amazing and the guides are very helpfull and willing to answer our questions.Loved the lava pieces and sysmograph....
A snapshot and indepth experience at the same time, all about volcanoes. From the 6 year old child to the aged adult, there is something for everyone. Hands on and very well interpreted panels and exhibits. Allow about an hour for sure and go just before closing so you can take advantage of seeing the crater in the dark.
We went to the Jaggar Museum twice while visiting Volcano National Park. Great place to see where the activity is going on in the park and to view the volcano crater right outside. Great pictures at night.
If you didn't know much about volcanos, this is the place to visit! Very informative! The view of Kilauea from the museum was awesome, particularly at night! Take a flashlight!
This museum offers many good, informative displays to make your park visit more enjoyable. We found it to be very helpful because of the good info available.
We came here twice to enjoy the glow of the volcano at night. Highly recommend that you not miss it! :-)
I have visited Lava Beds National Monument and Craters of the Moon National Park and I think this is the best volcano exhibit I have seen. I particularly liked the collection of old activity recording devices and the different samples of lava like Pele's tears and hair and ropes etc. The museum is a must before you go to view... More
