Fodor's Expert Review Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest

Sigri Educational Institution Fodor's Choice

Don't miss these excellent displays, where you can learn how trees in the nearby forest were petrified and where petrified tree trunks can be touched; the exhibits are scrupulously labeled and laid out. There are also some unique and amazing fossils of animals like the Deinotherium, an early ancestor of the elephants, and vegetation preserved on volcanic rock that resembles delicate Zen art.
