Our favorite art gallery in Hawaii! Each time we go to the Volcano Art Center, we are amazed with the collection displayed - photographs, paintings, pottery, jewelry, wooden bowls, Koa furniture, glasswork, etc. Handmade Christmas ornaments are available, too.

Spent some time here waiting for sundown to catch lava in action at the crater just outside. Lots of cool information and displays, and the guides really know their stuff and are very passionate! Glad we stopped to visit.

Beautiful artwork and the added bonus of a temporary ranger station here following the closure of Volcanoes National Park. Was great to talk to a ranger about what had happened. Not sure how long they will have someone posted there once the park re-opens.

We always stop by the art gallery when we're in the Park. It has a great collection of pottery, woodcraft, paintings, prints, photographs and jewelry. Always a treat to see what's new, and the staff is always friendly and informative.
