A very disappointing trip to see the Petrified Forest. I'm sure they would excite all those interested in geology and pillars of stone, perhaps I was expecting too much. A explanatory leaflet on entry would have been a good idea but the only guide available was a book which would have suited the aficionados but the average tourist? As I've... More

It may be at the far west part of the island (92 klms from the port of Mytilene) but it's worth every km. The museum is set with an excellent way, but the "real stuff" lays outside, the petrified trees that you can see all over the place. Absolutely great!

It looks like Scotland. The weather was very misty and then, out of the mist are these extraordinary stone trees. Never seen anything like it. Fascinating and a lovely excuse for a good walk - lots of steps and hills!

Interesting and beautiful. Very unusual museum. Went with a Thomas Cook coach trip. Got good history lesson on the way.

We hadn't expected the size of these huge trees. It's possible to take a short route, or one of several long hiking trails.

You need to be physically able, though journey is worth it and carrying on to beach at Sigri is worthwhile. I sat at the top and my companions did the walk
