Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a United States National Park located on the Big Island of the island state of Hawaii in the United States of America.
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park is open 24 hours a day, year-round.
Kilauea Visitor Center is open daily 7:45AM-5PM and Jaggar Museum is open daily from 8:30AM to 5PM. (Dec 24, 25 and Jan 1 hours vary).
Above all, be respectful. The people of Hawaii are very spiritually inclined, and consider the volcano to be a sacred place, the home of the Goddess Pele. Also, it is a volcano, so it may pay to be cautious.
Many people can spend several days exploring all that the park has to offer. There are a number of excellent hikes, showcasing most of the flavors of Hawaiian geological activity.
