I recommend the visit of this small and local museum, which explains well the geological formation of the Meteora site.
The visit took us a small hour to read each sign.

A nice and free museum that explains history of how Meteora developed. It starts at the beginning literally 4.7 billion years ago when this planet was formed. It explains rocks, minerals and over 2 stories lays out step by step process of the region.
It's really worth visiting to learn more about the region.

I visited this museum in conjunction with a nice hike in the area as I was curious how the surrounding area was formed. I couldn’t have asked for a more appropriate museum to answer my questions. I found the displays to be extremely informative, thoroughly relevant and easy to comprehend from a non- science person’s perspective. The staff is quite friendly and the setting is great - right in the center of Kastraki with the rock monoliths of Meteora towering above.

A Geological museum is what you need to know the "birth" of the wonderful Meteora. Modern, clean, and very helpful staff.

If you come to a place like Meteora you've got to wonder about how... when... why it formed the way it did. This little museum in the rather neat and charming village of Kastraki tells you lots about it in nice, non-technical bite-size chunks. Nicely laid out, two informative videos, lots of mineral exhibits and fossils, and a helpful and charming lady running the place and providing background information when we got there. Parking within yards, but big-ish steps to get up to enter. There's a lift, though, once inside.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum - more than I expected to. It's great, and well worth an hour of your life. Oh, and it's free to enter.
