The Botanical Museum opened in 1989, the fruit of the efforts of the Mountaineering Association to spotlight the wealth and variety of vegetal and animal life on Mount Bourino, to educate people in environmental awareness, and to emphasise the need to protect the Siatista area from activities that lead to environmental decline.

The Museum has been temporarily transferred to three rooms in the Tsipos Boarding School until completion of the restoration and repair work being carried out in its usual premises, the Trabadzis Gymnasium, which was damaged by the earthquake.

There are 700 flowers and plants displayed (in the form of photographs and dried plants), 500 rare butterflies, and a number of reptiles from the Messianos valley and the Bourino area in general.
