Volcano Museum

Recommended
In an ideal location at the start of the Route du Volcan, this recently renovated museum explains in a very original way the formation and geology of the island. Children and adults alike enjoy interacting with the cutting-edge installations (touch screens, earthquake simulators and videos), and in particular a very realistic 4D film. An excellent introduction to volcanology, for all levels, before you tackle the slopes of the Piton de la Fournaise.
