Volcano Museum



Located in Bourg-Murat, the volcano museum (La Maison du Volcan) is the best way to be introduced to the Fournaise volcano. To know whether or not an eruption is on progress at the moment and if you can go up to the top of the volcano, visit on our website the interactive webcam tab where you can see some video cameras shows in direct live what is up on the top of the volcano and in sensible areas.

The museum is also very interesting to understand how the island was formed or to learn about the different types of volcanoes. You can also see many videos of spectacular eruptions !

So come and visit the volcano museum to better enjoy your visit of the piton de la Fournaise volcano!
