Located at the Plaine des Cafres, between the Piton de la Fournaise and the Piton des Neiges, The Volcano House is a rehabilitated version of what was once the Maison du Volcan. This is a tourist building dedicated to the fun discovery of the volcanic activity of Reunion, an essential passage to better understand the particular geology of the island.

The establishment has innovative technological equipment:
  • A 4D cinema, a 270 ° panoramic screen, holographic projections, augmented realities, large format "multitouch" surfaces, etc. This major tourist attraction is also an international educational and scientific center.
  • The equipment spread over 6,000 m2 offers an innovative museography that integrates many interactive devices and models. Visitors can thus make their own visit to the museum and acquire knowledge of the geological history of La Réunion island.
