Don"t miss it. It's a long drive, but is worth it. You feel like driving through a prehistoric place. And de site doubles that feeling.

Only second to none, this museum displays unique findings from all around the world and especially from the Hellenic area. Visitors can learn a lot about volcanic activity, as well as understand how volcanoes are formed, erupt, are studied & how the natural environment is affected by them.

This museum is new, modern and inviting. The staff were very well informed, enthusiastic and interesting to talk to. They encouraged watching the film show before going round. We thought it important to visit before going to the actual forest and so it proved. The new road leading to it is also interesting as it has uncovered more petrified trees,... More

We had seen the Petrified Forrest on our way to Sigri and had been told there was a new display just opened in the Museum. The cost to enter was only 3 euro and that was discounted as we came on a tour bus. The Museum is new and a really good display of things related to the forest and... More

The hole place is excellent. The petrified park also. The village also. The castle, the harbour, all beaches mostly Faneromeni. One should return there again and again

The petrified forest park is an interesting place to see. You drive about 14 km from Sigri village up the mountain to get there and need about one hour walk to see the petrified trees. There's nearly no shade so don't go there during midday. Cold drinks are sold at the entrance.

Very instructive visit, in an absolutely beautiful, cool and organized museum that has so much to tell us and teach us. Amazing images and knowledge offered in this museum. After your visit, you may see our lives and our planet with the other eye. Worth visiting the small petrified forest next to the museum.
