Tried three times and the "bulb was being replaced" each time. No go for us. We did appreciate the friendly staff member but each time they advised it would be ready in an hour. I'm sure there's potential for a good experience but we didn't find it.
Most interesting night

Sleeping Next to a volcano we could see the red glow all night out our window ...we traveled through the areas now cut off or covered with lava 2018 I am happy we went when we did. We could not go into some of the areas because of the gases were too strong
Unfortunately the Park is Closed

My husband and I loved a Saturday evening out to include an early dinner at Volcano House's Rim Restaurant, and then a short drive to the Jaggar Museum. The food and the service at the restaurant have been excellent. Unfortunately, the hotel and restaurant have been closed since the Kilauea eruption in May - August 2018. While the facility is still standing, it's unknown when the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where Volcano House is located, will reopen.
Worth it for the glow

This was a great splurge to be near the volcano for a couple of nights. I'm not sure what's going on now, but the feeling of being so close to the crater was incomparable. Dinner at the restaurant is a must, with the light-off show. Again, this was before the recent eruptions. Hopefully, someday it will go back to how it was, as it was a memorable stay.
Before the volcano erupted we went there

I am sure that this review is no longer worth much as so much as changed since the eruption has changed the landscape considerably. We walked and visited and appreciated being on the Rim of the Crater. This year, we look at that and say- right there- we were right there!
