  • 花左唔少時間揸車到博物館, 但結果仍係因為火山唔穩定唔可以坐覽車睇火山... 不過博物館個模型都做得好細緻, 值得一睇. 
  • 出發時的天氣很好,但揸車到半路中時開始下毛毛,所以去到阿蘇火山時因天氣關係上山覧車關閉,我們為有泊好車到博物館參觀。內裏有三D影片介紹有関火山的四季天氣,也耤得一看。 
  • People want to know that the volcano is recommended. So almost empty during the Charter States as served without any inhibitions. Sometimes I'm kind of lapilli and ash samples and return the good time I had lucky. Especially every time even if there is no change, but somehow, would try every time.

  • Needs an update. And charging what they do when (understandably) the live crater cameras are out of action is a wee bit off. An English audio guide would help too. Rainy day stuff if the view is obscured.
  • The exhibition is really dated, most exhibits haven't been updated since the museum's opening in the early 1980s. (Sure, the facts displayed might not have changed, but the means to convey them have.) The entrance fee isn't exactly cheap; considering that, the overall experience is underwhelming. For people who don't read Japanese, it's hardly possible to follow. Not much explanation in English. While the website says there is a free audio guide (which we only noticed after our visit), we weren't offered one when we bought our tickets and there was no sign of an audio guide at the ticket counter. If you go to Mount Aso, you probably should visit the museum anyway. Try to get a guide in your language you're interested in the science part.
  • An museum ( entrance fee needed ) with old information ! 5 minutes drive ( 30 min walking distance ) from the cable car station to the creator of Mt Aso !
  • Good study.
