This is a little drive out of town but worth a visit. There was a whole section up stairs which was all in Greek which was a shame as most of the other exhibits had English versions too. the area which is located is lovely, with a nice park across the road and nice places to eat. worth a visit.

It was great experience for adults and kids! One of the biggest collections of different crystals! Animals look so real that kids were afraid to pose next to it! Very highly recommended!

I have been here 3 or 4 times and enjoyed it thoroughly every time. If you can take the guided tour. There are specimens of petrified trees, showing the different colours and ring patterns and one section of glass floor displaying them beautifully. They are so varied, I loved finding out which trees were growing here then. There is also... More

Visiting the Natural History Museum in Sigri is a very nice experience. It is putting the petrified forest into a perspective, how it came into a being starting some 20 million years ago. Aside, a visit to Sigri is certainly charming.

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
