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

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

A lovely building set at the top of Sigri housing an excellent collection of beautiful rocks and crystals. The displays are done well and there are some interactive points too. 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...

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.
