I had a quick view of the different pieces of artwork however to be honest this was hard to appreciate with the larges amounts of people walking around and two children hauling me from place to place.

This gallery features local artists inspired by the dramatic setting. There are a half dozen rooms featuring different media from glass to paintings to wood carvings.

This is a must see. The center supports local artists, so you get something unique to the area that most other shops on the island doesn't carry. I always find something special there. Plus you are supporting the park, in these times it is important since Republican politicians are trying to do away with the National Park system.

My wife and I have visited the Volcano Art Center several times during visits to Kiluaua Volcano. It's housed in a rustic house just inside the park boundaries and near the Volcano House. Though it looks small on the outside, it houses several rooms of artistic items, including jewelry, ceramics, glass, koa wood objects and, of course, lots of art... More

Very nice collection of native art. From the colors and topics we can catch a glimpse into the traditional Hawaii.

When visiting The Volcanoes National park be sure to take a few minutes to have a look at the beautiful works at the center! Really worth it! Aloha
