  • The museum/interpretation center tells the story of how volcanoes shaped our earth and especially about the Azores' history. It has a lot of different rocks and it is very educational. It has a small theatre where they show an educational movie about the creation of earth. The only downside is that the hologram did not really work like a hologram should. I would highly recommend to visit this place if you are visiting the Azores. Seasonal Greetings! Daniel
  • This Interpretation Centre explains the story of the Capelinhos Volcano which erupted during 1957/58 near the shore in the ocean. The ticket includes the visit to the museum and the lighthouse with nice views over the volcano landscape. Outside the museum you can also climb the small hills for really nice views over the sorronding area and see the mixture of the green island landscape with the volcano and the ocean.
