Magnificent geological site!!

A visit to the museum should be done along with the visit to the park and the trip with the glass bottom boat, in order to fully enjoy this unique geological effect! !!

This is a truly remarkable museum. We could not visit the Petrified Forest itself as it was closed due to staff shortages, but we were not disappointed as the museum highlights the amazing geology of the island and displays many exhibits from the Petrified Forest. Very informative interpretation exhibits and well laid out. Please visit when you come to this... More

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
