Not a lot to do in Kamchatka when low clouds and rain stick over the peninsula, so the Vulcanirium is a rare good alternative. Tours as well as signs in English and Russian help explain how the peninsula became famous for the number and variety of its volcanoes.

This museum is great fun to visit and teaches you everything you need to know about vulcanoes you will need to know in an enjoyable way. Booking a tour is a great idea as you will get even more information out of your tour. The samples displayed are all collected in and around kamtschatka and you are allowed to touch the different lava to appreciate the different texutures an properties.

I liked this museum because there were tons of lava samples and sand and dirt from area volcanoes, that you could feel, and test. For example, in Exhibit Room 1 there was a magnet you could you to see the magnetic qualities of certain sand, and a bowl of water where you could test which pieces of lava were buoyant. The descriptions and plaques on the wall had English translations, so that was helpful. I enjoyed reading about the volcanoes I had already been to because the museum gave me a new perspective on them. So I don’t necessarily agree with some of the reviewers here who say you need to see the museum first before you go to the volcanoes. This museum also had a 7-minute virtual reality film in English, where you put on Virtual Reality glasses and take a tour of the Kamchatka peninsula. I enjoyed this alot. I felt like I was really in the Geyser Valley (which I missed because the helicopter ride was canceled due to bad weather). The only negative about this museum is that its not near Lenin Square and the theater, which I consider the central part of town, where you can walk to other interesting sites.

Our guide Ruslana was excellent. We've learned a lot of interesting information about vulcanos. If you have a day to get around the city, it definitely worth a visit.

The museum itself is quite interesting, but to have a worthy experience I would highly recommend the guided tour. It is best to gather many people to book the tour since its paid by group and not by individuals. I was lucky and met a student who spoke English and who was really interested in sharing his knowledge. He answeared all my questions without me needing to book a tour. In generell the three student personell was friendly, heartwarming and gave me good advice for further activities
