Jagger Museum, Volcano

4.7
Jagger Museum offers sheltered viewing of a volcanic crater. Visit the outdoor terrace to get an even closer look inside the volcano. One of the busiest spots on the Crater Rim Drive Tour, the museum features seismographs that track volcanic activity so you'll know if an eruption is coming with plenty of time to evacuate. See suits worn by volcanologists who got a little too close to lava flows. When you park, look out for the nene, Hawaii's official bird. The geese wander the parking lot looking for snacks. See Jagger Museum and all Volcano has to offer by arranging your trip with our Volcano holiday builder app .

  • Even though we live nearby, Jaguar museum was always a great source of information for us and our visitors. Due last summer’s eruption, the museum and overlook are closed.  more »
  • I hope they can rebuild to their amazing displays after the volcano events. It was a tremendous place for a volcano education  more »

  • Wait until after sunset to see the glow from the caldera.
  • It’s the best place to view the Kilauea Volcano's Crater. On regular day, you cannot expect to see any lava. There are only smoke coming out of the crater or it could be nothing. It could be crowded as everyone would come here to take a picture. Whatever, it’s totally worth the effort to come here.
