Vulcania, Saint-Ours

(1,800+ reviews on the web)
Science Museum
A new amusement park dedicated to volcanoes, Vulcania, combines scientific discovery and family tourism with a virtual tour and discovery trails to explore the history. You and your children will love the indoor simulators that take you on a flight over a super volcano in Mission Toba. Remember to visit the legends of the underworld on the Dragon Ride and face the harshest elements in the Angry Earth series. Ride the VolcanBul, an outdoor electric vehicle that explores the Chaîne des Puys, look at the geyser, and step into the greenhouse with sub-tropical and ancient volcanic environments. Put Vulcania into our Saint-Ours trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Saint-Ours.

  • We drove past signs for this on the autoroute between Moulins and The Dordogne and thought "Why not? Can't think of a volcano museum we can go to in the UK!" When we arrived it was teeming and is obvi...  more »

  • Amazing facility but unless you are fluent in French you will not get value for money at €90 for a family of four. All signs, information and literature are written in French with no translations. The workshops, talks and experiments are all in French also. This is obviously understandable with it being in France but although there is audio equipment available for translations, it is limited. This should be made clear to non-Fench speakers before payment is accepted. That said, for the French this is a great place to visit.
  • I was pleasantly surprised by this park. There were lots of activities for kids of all ages and adults. We went there on a rainy day expecting it to be a waste of time. However, it was completely the opposite. This is a place you can visit on a rainy day with no problem and no loss of quality.
  • Far exceeded expectations. A fascinating place with plenty of choices of what to do and see.
  • I went there in 2012 in July. my friends and I we had such wonderful time there. the tickets weren't expensive at all
  • The Park is detailed and very interessting. But everything is written in french. Makes it difficult to understand and leaves the foreign tourists lost in translation.
