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.

Jagger Museum Reviews
So many memories... Will cherish this spot forever, building was compromised during the 60,000+ earthquakes that occurred right below the building more »
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 »
Wait until after sunset to see the glow from the caldera.
Wonderful place. We could see live volcanoes beside this museum. We could gather knowledge about the local people & history of volcanoes eruption here. The Polynesians tribes history was there. We could see lot of books too there & those were available for sale. The scientists studying about volcanoes, tools were kept there to look at.
