For over two centuries, the beautiful gardens of the Capodistrias Museum have inspired and welcomed visitors. Today, more than ever, we need contact with nature. The Association of Friends of the Museum, aims to cover the costs for a master plan for further developing the Capodistrias Museum Gardens.
Enhansing visitors’ experience of the Garden, which has all the characteristics of a natural monument, is one of the Museum’s main aims. Here, the Corfiot countryside, with its lush flora, blends with traces from the past, creating a space of discovery, relaxation and enjoyment.
To learn more about the Museum, its gardens and Ioannis Capodistrias, visit the Museum’s website.
The Kapodistrias Museum is housed in one of the holiday homes of the Kapodistrias family, near the village of Evropouloi, in the middle of Corfu.
The Museum aims at sustainable development. To this end, it takes care not only of its Collections but also of the natural environment in which it operates.
