Volcano exhibit will open in November

An active eruption on Oahu is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world.

On Wednesday designers and engineers tested a prototype volcano at Bishop Museum.
It's part of the upcoming "Pu'u O'o" volcanic vent exhibit.

The $645,000 volcano includes active eruptions, gusts of hot air and lava plumes.
It's about 40-feet in diameter at the base, and reaches 26-feet high.

The volcano will erupt several times a day, and visitors will actually be able to experience what it's like to crawl through volcanic caves. It's scheduled to open on November 19th.
