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

This information centre really adds the The Timanfaya experience, giving the background, and additional data that puts the history (and future) of the Island as well as Timanfaya in context.

This short stop will provide you with a good overview of the volcanic activity in the area. It's a small museum (with clean restrooms) and won't take you more than 30 minutes to explore.
