Jaggar Museum is a definite site to visit when going to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. In the year 1908, a lot of people were killed in an earthquake in Italy. That is when Thomas Jaggar decided that this is the time that something should be done about the research on seismic and volcanic activity. The rest as they say is history. With funding found in a year, today this museum stands with its head held high and gives an amazing panoramic view of the Kilauea volcano. The museum was also largely renovated in the year 2008. Today it is a great attraction to find out about the history of the two most major volcanic eruptions.

Jaggar Museum, Volcano Reviews - Write a Review
Great museum for history and information regarding the volcano as well as current conditions. Very good, if distant vantage point to view the actual lava shooting up from the crater. Night views are much more dramatic.
A must stop for a live glimpse of an active Volcano, the park rangers have set up binoculars right outside the museum to really capture and be able to see the active volcano in action. You cannot miss that. The museum itself is super informative, a lot of lava rock samples, shows you formation of Hawaii island, and the current active volcanoes. We went to visit this again at night and it captures a whole different experience, the light from the active lava can be seen well over a mile, make sure you bring a light jacket since it does get super chilly at night. A must stop in the volcano national park.
The exhibit is great for kids, but also has a really good view for the volcano. 4 stars since I'm not a kid and didn't bring one
I wish we had time to go inside and learn more about the volcano. The signage looked well done and educational with many items that were really used to explore the volcano. The view from the overlook is awesome, we got to see lava splashing inside the crater.
Great museum, very nice examples of different lava types! Really informative!
