Museum of Geological Formations of Meteora
The “Museum of Geological Formations of Meteora” opened in May 2018.
It is housed in the old building of the Primary School of Kastraki, which is considered as a historical monument.
It is a two storeyed building, with each floor being 230m2 and all together reaching 460 m2. The total site is 854 m2, found in the central square of Kastraki under the Holy rocks of the Holy Meteora.
Entering the Museum the visitor is taken 30 million years backwards. You are able to see the geological site of the Meteora as sea span, slowly developing into the Holy Meteora of today.
