  • At the Museum learn of ASO mountains and calderas, located near grass Chisato. You can see a picture of Mt. ASO in the theater room, children learning. During the summer it is perfect to go with my family.

  • Not all people like a museum, it needs a better concept to make it more interesting place. people can come to this place to take a rest in some of the restaurants or buy souvenirs.  more »
  • Now we have not reached the top of the mountain ⛰️, because the car has stopped, I really disappointed, hope to be restored as soon as I can. But at the top of the mountain store, you have to eat ice cream and hot milk!

  • It's a interesting learning experience. There are free audio guides in many languages like English and Chinese. The facilities are a bit outdated but it is a cute place to enjoy a afternoon. There is ample parking. The gift shop and cafe inside is also nice. It's worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Loved it. The volcanic museum was foreigner friendly. The tour guide and translator did a wonderful job.
  • We used the free car park just uphill from the Volcano Museum. Good stop for when you are RVing in Mt Aso. Better views.
  • very nice place to experience the volcano and the effect of earthquake. Theatre is cool! the area near volcano (r=1km) is restricted. However, it's still good to walk around and take some photos.
  • Very friendly staff with great knowledge and good English! The grounds around the museum are amazing for a hike!
