    Really worth seeing Museum, especially after the (temporary?) mysterious closure of the actual petrified forest on Lesvos. Many beautiful and interesting contemporary witnesses from the petrified forest are exhibited in the Museum (also leaves, fruits and even skeletons). The second major exhibition employs himself with the cause of the petrified forest (which the island Manjul on...), the volcanism. With numerous maps of the world and exciting models, this interesting phenomenon brings itself closer to the visitors. Really a successful Museum on the top of the Hill of Sigri.

    Spectacular sea and clear as glass water, certainly because of the petrified forest. The water is so clean that you can count the fish. That's the way to Museum sigri bi turn without half an hour. So if you enter there are fossilized rock. Again, this area you can visit the historic castle, too. By the way chaise longue a Virgin umbrella. Be sure to bring a towel with you mat. ..

    An amazing hidden gem. Extremely well curated. Students from regional colleges are available at hand for more precise information.

    Petrified remains of a nearby prehistoric forest, but also other exhibits. Demonstration of how an earthquake of 9 on Richter scale feels and how to survive it. Very good.

    Informational. Interesting. Cool with interactive maps and informative videos.

    More educational than you would expect. Along with an extensive description of how the petrified wood is formed you also find out a lot about the island's history, formation of volcanos and mineral structure. Parts of the museum were closed off for upgrading so didn't get to see everything, also the video provided is very short and not very informative.
