  “GAIA: from myth to science”

In this section you come face to face with the impressive evolution of life in the Aegean basin. This is demonstrated by a plethora of plant and animal fossils, as well as early hominids. Exhibits from the Lesvos Petrified Forest Museum create an amazing setting, frozen in time: fossilized trunks, roots and branches and images of contemporary trees along with their corresponding petrified ancestral forms. In a floor display of the Aegean Sea, real exhibits emerge from their respective locations, creating a spectacular interactive setting.
