It wasn't the Volcano National Park's fault. Kilauea just wasn't very active when we visited. All you could see was a cloud of gas rising up a few miles away. If you check the Park's website, you can find a link to the live webcam at Jagger Point museum. It will show you what you can see. At night, you can see the lava's reddish-orange glow in the rising gases.
Thurston Lava Tube was interesting and a little cold. It is about 800' long and maybe 20' in diameter. There is some incandescent, but dim, lighting in the tube. Watch your step so you don't walk into a puddle of water!
At steam vents, the steam rising up out of the concrete enclosed vent near the parking lotis VERY hot. Be careful if a gust blows the steam towards you or your children!
