“Nice museum with a great view!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Over all a good museum, somewhat crowded when a bus shows up but the main attraction is the volcano right outside!

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I usually blow through the musemish things in national parks but you don't want to miss this one. Fascinating information about the big island and its volcanoes including eruption history, scientific/technological information and a great book/gift shop. Your scientific-minded kids especially will LOVE it.

Here is a place that will give you all the information about Hawaii volcanos that you can handle. Great view of the creator, if you go at night you can see the laval lake glowing
