Capodistrias Museum

The only Museum dedicated to Ioannis Capodistrias, first Governor of Greece and distinguished European statesman, is located in his homeland, Corfu.

The Museum is housed in “Koukouritsa”, one of the Capodistrias’ family country estates, where Ioannis Capodistrias resided for a period in his youth.

The Museum offers its visitors a unique opportunity to discover the history of Corfu, 19th century Europe and the modern Greek State in a picturesque setting and a declared National Heritage Monument.

The museum is located within a luscious garden with beautiful views over the Ionian sea, Corfu town and the mainland mountains. The permanent exhibition is presented in the house-museum and tells the story of Ioannis Capodistrias’ life and era, through its unique collection of personal and family artefacts, works of art and digital media. The open-air Museum Cafe in the garden serves drinks and light snacks.
