The Hills are Alive

Construction of Volcanic Museum Now Underway in Kintamani.

(11/27/2005) Scheduled for completion in 2007, Bali will soon be home to a museum dedicated entirely to the study and understanding of volcanoes.

Located in Kintamani, near Baliís still active Mt. Batur, the Volcanic Museum will present an overview of Indonesia's nearly 130 volcanoes; the central role volcanoes play in Indonesia's daily existence; and the history of eruptions in Indonesia's past - many of which have literally shook the world. In addition, the museum will also be home to elaborate volcanic and seismic measuring technologies that will allow guests the chance to directly monitor Indonesia's ever-changing geology.

The total estimated cost of the Museum project is Rp. 43 billion (approximately US$4.3 million) and is expected to play a major role in helping to revitalize Kintamani's appeal as a tourist destination within Bali.
