A visit to the Kapodistrias Museum
The Kapodistrias Museum or Kapodistrias Museum–Centre of Kapodistrian Studies  is a museum dedicated to the memory and life's work of Ioannis Kapodistrias.  It is located in the area Koukouritsa of Evropouli in Corfu, Greece.The property was donated by Maria Desylla-Kapodistria (Μαρία Δεσύλλα Καποδίστρια) great granddaughter of Georgios Kapodistrias, younger brother of Ioannis Kapodistrias and the only one of the brothers who got married. The museum was established in 1981. Ioannis Kapodistrias' summer home in the rural area of Koukouritsa in his birthplace of Corfu, houses the museum, showcasing exhibits commemorating his life and accomplishments. Mrs Maria Desylla-Kapodistria, a former mayor of Corfu (1956–1959) and the first female mayor in Greece, donated the residence to the three primary cultural societies of Corfu specifically for that purpose. The museum also functions as a centre for Kapodistrian and Corfiote studies.

Permanent Exhibition
The new Permanent Exhibition presents items from the Museum’s collection, loans and also other digital documents, in order to promote the life and career of Ioannis Kapodistrias in the most complete and thorough way possible.
The exhibition is chronologically organized and follows the life and career of Ioannis Kapodistrias in Corfu and the Septinsular Republic in general, in Russia and other western European countries, and finally in the new State of Greece, through items that belonged to himself and his family, his personal letters, as well as through various government documents.
The exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to form a more complete mental picture regarding the life and legacy of a man who played a major role in the shaping of European balances at the beginning of the 19th century, and also in the organization of the Septinsular Republic, the latter United States of the Ionian Islands, and of course the newly-formed State of Greece.
The experience of the visit is enhanced by digital media, demonstrating the life, legacy and the multifaceted work of this great politician.
