Casa de los Volcanes is a very innovative museum in Lanzarote dedicated to the volcanic origin of the island. This center of scientific, cultural, pedagogical and tourist interest is located in the Natural Park of Malpaís de la Corona; specifically, on a volcanic tube in the section known as Jameos del Agua, and it is a unique space in Spain for the contents it proposes.

What to see in the 'House of the Volcanoes' of Lanzarote?

The House of the Volcanoes of Lanzarote has facilities of 2,500 square meters distributed over two floors, which in turn are divided into a dozen rooms organized around three main thematic axes:

 

  1. The process of geological formation of the volcanic tube of the Crown and the transformation carried out in Jameos del Agua by the artist César Manrique.
  2. The work developed in the House of the Volcanoes and the contents of the Lanzarote – Chinijo Archipelago Geopark.
  3. ‘Planetary analogues’, a vision of Mars on Earth.

 

The rooms of the House of the Volcanoes are the following:

 

  1. Laboratory Room. It is on the ground floor and collects the work dedicated to listening and analyzing the ‘heartbeat’ of the planet, an investigation in the field of geoscience.
  2. Rosario Lunar Room. It houses a collection of stones and minerals donated by the geologist Rosario Lunar to the island of Lanzarote.
  3. César Manrique Room. It is on the top floor and shows a part of the life, work and thought of the local artist who transformed the Jameos del Agua.
  4. Corona Volcanic Tube Room.
  5. Volcanic tube Recreation Room. It has a surprising and innovative technological equipment.
