Worth a stop, it's free after all with decent parking space. You get to learn a bit about vulcano's, the Lanzarote vulcano's and the outbreaks. Won't take too much time but it's worth a visit.

A fascinating exhibition of information boards, models and visuals that explained everything you need to know about volcanoes. The quality and clarity of the exhibition would keep adult and child engaged. During out visit, the main 40 minute documentary could not be heard in English.

Unfortunately the actual volcano tour was closed due to the ongoing strike so we drove past it and on to this museum. Entry was free and it was a very worthwhile stop explaining in detail how the volcanos on Lanzarote came into being. Only slight...More
