I learnt that there are different types of volcanoes and unique elements of Reunion island. I think 4D movie was just ok. But audio guides was good for non french speakers like us. Highly recommend Leaves more than 2 hours for going through everything!

We enjoyed the visit of this Museum. You will need about 2 hours to see everything, so arrive not later than 15 00. There is anice shop in the Museum where you can buy some local handicraft and minerals.

This muséum is surprisingly good. Modern an high tech but not pretentious. Very informative but still pleasant and attractive. Definitely worth a stop on your way to the volcano. Don't miss the "4D" movie for a modest 2 euros extra it's worth them!!!
