Friends of THe Capodistrias Museum

Our vision

The Friends seek to assist the Capodistrias Museum in achieving its goals as a cultural foundation situated at the european periphery. They also make efforts to provide financial assistance to the Museum’s activities in order for it to operate as a state-of-the-art museum and as a research center regarding the Capodistrian era.

About Us

The Friends Association supports the museum’s management at all levels – planning, raising awareness, funding- in order to assist in the realisation of its goals.

 

Our vision is driven by a genuine desire to promote the double goal of the Capodistrias Mu-seum: to become a biographical museum that has an international story to tell as well as preserving a natural sanctuary which embodies the magic of Corfu’s flora.

…You advise me that no matter where I am, I should always remember my homeland and my family. Both ideas are so deeply vital to my being, akin to air for breathing…”

Support The Gardens Campaign

Small museums have been hit particularly hard by Covid-19.  This campaign, established by the Society of Friends of the Museum, aims at supporting the Gardeners of the Capodistrias Museum Gardens throughout 2021. And this will take us to our ultimate goal which is to have this historic garden listed as the first Greek Historic Garden included on the European Route of Historic Gardens.
