Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum is located on the city of Kalambaka, very close to Meteora.
Essentially, there are two museums housed in a building of 1100 m2 that host two permanent collections: The first one is about animals and contains approximately 350 species of mammals and birds, while the second one is about mushrooms and contains approximately 250 species of mushrooms.
Ιt is not just the quality of the exhibits that makes this Museum great, but also the way of presentation, which is unique for Greek standards and it can be compared with other similar European museums.
Also, as part of the effort to expand the Museum’s activity, there is an Artspace with a permanent exhibition of paintings and sculptures of local artists. The artists explore projects similar to Museum’s theme, connecting the natural and cultural heritage through their own artistic experience and way of expression.
Furthermore, your visit does not stop here! It continues to the Museum’s cafe where you can enjoy your coffee enjoying the view of the rocks of Meteora and it ends at the Museum’s souvenir shop where you can buy unique souvenirs, as well as a big variety of wild edible mushrooms of excellent quality, placed in a unique product packaging.
These products of Greek nature, having the logo and guarantee of the Museum, can be an ideal and a very tasty gift.
Most of the mushrooms are collected from surrounding areas, which are famous not only for their mushroom quantity, but also for the quality. Therefore, the Museum has compiled a list of activities related to mushrooms, which essentially constitutes a new touristic product and enriches uniquely the planned visit in the area of Meteora.
