Collection

The collection of exhibits in the Capodistrias Museum counts approximately 400 items and documents that either belonged to Ioannis Capodistrias and his family, or concern his work and legacy.

The Museum’s collection displays a wealth of objects, such as several personal use items that belonged to the Governor, honorary gifts he received, medals, books, works of art and documents from the Capodistrian Period, and also furniture and household items that either Capodistrias himself used or they were installed by subsequent generations of the family during their stay in Koukouritsa.

The largest part of the collection came from a donation by a descendant of the Governor’s brother, the late Grand Benefactor Maria Capodistria – Desylla, who, along with the estate, also donated many unique family heirlooms. Throughout the years, the Museum’s collection has been enlarged by several donations from supporters of the Museum and other fellow countrymen, who wish to save heirlooms and documents concerning Ioannis Capodistrias and put them on display for the wider public.

Below there are four items of the collection placed on exhibit at the Museum.
