Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has fenced off the Jaggar Museum during the dismantling of the building, which is part of the park's Disaster Recovery Project, on Thursday in Volcano. The building was irreparably damaged during the 2018 Kilauea eruption and summit collapse.

For the first time in nearly a century, Kilauea summit will soon be without a museum.
