A very well organised museum about the petrified forest of Lesvos and many others exhibits about nature. It has exhibits inside and outside the building of the museum and many informations about each one of them. Definetly worths a visit.

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.

The museum sits like a small castle at the top of the hill in the seaside village of Sigri. It is a beautiful building, made from local stone and with a lovely path leading round it through to an amphitheater which hosts events and concerts, and a beautiful herb garden. The guides are all knowledgeable, very helpful and fluent English-speakers.... More

Good for understanding the petrification process before or after visiting the petrified forest. Nice cafe and a little shop selling oil and other local products. After you've finished in the... More

If you visit the Petrified Forest then you must visit this museum!! Has a lot of information on the forest found in Lesvos, but also gives you a general idea on the whole state that the forest is in.

Excellent Museum, well kept and serviced !!! A delight to see that on Lesvos. The staff were absolutely excellent in giving information and guiding us around. Worth visiting the Earthquake simulator. The cafe caters for locally produced products which is a freshness compared to the sterilized uniform mass produced biscuits. However we failed to find for sale post-cards of the... More

For a 2 Euro you will see a lot of monument, statue and other portret wich are exposed. They are several level and believe a lot to see for a small "entry".
