Same with the variety of volcanic rock--all together on a table to see, touch, read intersting, cogent descriptions.

We enjoyed this little museum that melds volcanic art depictions( including an Andy Warhol), a film of the 2010 eruption, and volcanic rocks. The collection is put together by a world renowned scientist

Tiny museum with an hour of documentary footage to watch. We found it very interesting but I wouldn't recommend for younger kids. OUr 14 and 17 year olds were fine thru the movie but much younger and I think they would have been bored.
