Museum of Palaiopoli

The Museum of Palaiopoli is housed in the palace of Mon Repos, at the heart of the homonymous, verdant estate. It includes an exhibition of archaeological items from the excavations of Palaiopoli but, in combination with the perception that the world had for seniority in the 19th century, when the villa was created, while excavations began and findings came to light.

The villa of Mon Repos gives a unique tone to the Museum of Palaiopoli: the building is an architectural ornament, a representative sample of the era and is considered one of the earliest neoclassical buildings.

Nine of the halls of the ground floor operate as exhibition areas of the Museum of Palaiopoli, as well as six of the halls of the first floor and the large hypostyle hall of the second floor.

In the ground floor of the Museum of Palaiopoli the visitors are informed about the edifice and life in 19th century, through documents, furniture and paintings of this era. The excavations of Palaiopoli and their findings (concerning trade, the daily life and worship in ancient Corfu) are hosted in the areas of the first floor, while in the second floor periodical exhibitions are organized.
