About museum

The “Vulcanarium” museum of volcanoes on the Kamchatka Peninsula was opened in July 2017 on the basis of the “Interestarium” house of entertaining science. The founders of the museum ventured to invest their own and borrowed funds to create a fundamentally new place. The enthusiasm of the founders and employees of the museum increased its popularity.

The museum presents samples of volcanic rocks, ash and sand, altered rocks, and minerals. 3D-models of the main volcanic rock groups are presented. The museum is equipped with multimedia exhibits that demonstrate the movement of the Earth’s crust, and a video showing lava flows and other bright phenomena of volcanism is also presented to the visitors of the museum. Samples of volcanic equipment, elements of the Itelmen culture, and items of geological life are also presented.

The “Vulcanarium” museum has been included in the national register of leading cultural institutions of Russia since 2017.
