    Great spot to watch the lava glow after sunset. Check out the seismograph inside to see how big the earthquake was that you just felt.

    This museum and gift shop actually stays open the latest of all the buildings. Which is good since the crater at night is worth seeing!

    I suggest coming as late as you can so noisy people and people using flash on photos aren't there. It was much cooler for us to see and hear the lava by ourselves.

    If you come here at night, it's very dark. Try not to shine your flashlight towards the photographers. It can hurt the quality of pictures. The view of the stars and volcano are unforgettable.

    You can't touch this. But you can enjoy the lava's red glow natural live show here from dusk till dawn. Just beware of rad tourists trying to block first row spots. And bring everything you can wear.

    In the gift shop, they sell guides to 4 popular trails ($2 each or all 4 for $7). Well worth buying, as there's a lot of neat info & history in them, even if you're not actually gonna do the hikes!

    Very windy and cold the night we went to see the glow. Dress in layers and bring a flashlight. Viewing area open 24 hours a day.

    Be sure to check out the seismograph (sp?) machine that you can affect by stomping on the ground. Totally awesome!
