Great site to visit to get background on the geography and the volcanic eruption at La Restinga. Not a fan of their "interactive" menu navigation as it was a bit jittery but all the information is interesting, educational and a good mix of different media.

This is a good attraction, educational and reasonably priced. As divers we found the second display area dealing with the underwater effects of the Restinga eruption especially interesting.

The museum is in a great spot where you can see nearly all of the southern coast of the island. It is situated in a lava field so lots to absorb just from its position.

There are two buildings, one has an in depth look at the eruption off the coast of La Restinga in 2011. Great pictures and video that explains not just the geology but what it meant for the local people.

The other building has descriptions of more general volcano information including how the Canary Islands were formed. It has a hand gesture interface to get the information.

All is self guided. We enjoyed the tour.

This museum blew us away. The landscape itself is stunning with several different types of lava and volcanic formations. It has two rooms, the first with a panormic array of screens providing stunning visuals from the most recent eruption, clleverly and clearly explaining in multiple languages simulataneously. It has a plethora of touch screen desks where you can dig into the bits the eruption that you find interesting.

The second room contains information about the volcanic history of El Hierro and the canary islands, offering several stations which are controled using physical free space gestures thanks to several kinects.

This museum is interesting and informative and well laid out so that everyone can participate no matter what their home language is.

Really very very impressive. Even though no mention of Spock was made.

The center is brand new (so new the guide says administration has not YET set a fee) with impressive high tech visual displays to explain the volcanic activity and history on El Hierro. Also a brief guided walk, explaining the volcanic landscape & plants, to a second center dealing specifically with the 2011 volcanic eruption.

This is a well presented exhibition showing the eruption which occurred just south of El Hierro some years ago. It's really worth going to and very interesting

When we visited here, it was very quiet and we had the car park to ourselves. There is a walk which takes you through various types of volcanic lava formations down to a room with multi language video presentations of the 2011 offshore eruption which resulted in La Restinga being evacuated. It was an interesting exhibition and worth seeing however I think the exhibition on La Palma was more detailed and a little better overall. The walk does take you over some quite rough loose ground so I recommend wearing walking shoes or boots to avoid any ankle injuries.

Interesting information regarding volcanos in general with real clips and film of the 2011 underwater eruption where inhabitants la La Restinga were forced to evacuate the town. Huge computerised multilingual screens with special sound effects bring the 2011 eruption to life and portray events as they happened.
