Přírodovědné geologické museum na ostrově Lesvos
The Greek State recognizing the exceptional palaeontological and geological value of the Petrified forest of Lesbos has considered it as a unique natural monument. In order to protect the Petrified forest and ensure its proper management five terrestrial and marine areas, with fossil accumulations as well as all the isolated fossils within the area of 37.50 acrew, were declared as Protected Natural Monument with a special Presidential Degree (No 443 /1985). The need for further research and protection of the fossils led to the establishment of the Natural History Mouseum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest .The Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest was established in 1994 to study, research, promote, preserve and conserve the unique Petrified Forest of Lesvos, a designated Protected Natural Monument. Located in picturesque Sigri on the Western shores of Lesvos, the Museum functions under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and was established with Greek state and Eu Second Community Support Framework funds.

It is conspired by two main exhibition sectors, the palaeontological - paleobotanic one and the geological one, entitled «the evolution of the Aegean sea and the creation of the Petrified Forest». The current ecosystems in the Aegean area are on display in the Multy-media room. The Museum is housed in a single-flored stone-made building, and covers 1570 square meters. It includes exhibition rooms, a seminar room, and laboratories for scientific research. The recently established Natural History Museum of Lesvos Petrified Forest, therefore, has the potential to be a center of palaeontological and other scientific research. Further research in the Petrified Forest will provide new data concerning the stratigraphy, palaeoecology, palaeoclimatology, and palaeogeography of the South-East Mediterranean area, at the Crossroad of Europe and Αsia.Více a fotografie na web.stránkách muzea -viz.ZDROJ ZDROJ:http://www.aegean.gr/petrified_forest/Frames/HTML/English/Frames.htm
