Jagger Museum And Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Hawaii - The Big Island

Halemau'uma'u's crater's view from the overlook outside the Jagger Museum offers an incredible panoramic view of the Kilauea Caldera.  On a clear night, the erupting crater can provide the visitor with a spectacular view.

Jagger Museum's main function is the study and display of volcanology which focuses on eruption, flow, and type of lava.  The scientific equipment and methods used by the seismologists also can be viewed in the main exhibits.

In addition to volcano science, there are several Hawaiian Cultural exhibits that features and correlates the close relationship of Pelehonuamea, the Hawaiian deity of volcanos and fire.
