Volcano Museum

Recommended
The museum, whose architecture was designed to echo the shape of a volcano, takes a playful yet scientific approach to volcanism and the Earth's origins. The Piton de la Fournaise is the star of the show here and reveals all its secrets. The new museography puts the emphasis on interactivity and new technologies.
