About
"Welcome! Please, come in! The Count will be with you presently. He hopes you will join him and the Countess in the drawing room for tea." This is what you would hear at Casa Parlante, the most alive historical museum in Corfu. A 19th century noble mansion comes to life with stories to tell. In the unique architectural setting of a classical mansion in the historic Old town of Corfu, the everyday life of the island's 19th century nobility is recreated. Through animated figures, using robotic technology, and the perfect reproduction of decor and furnishing, Casa Parlante promises to deliver you a true insight into bygone Corfu. Awakening all your senses, the traditions of the island unfold in front of you, depicting family life in an authentic experience of sights, sounds and smells. Before your eyes the house will come to life... Listen to the children of the family playing music, smell the aromas of the cook's virtuosic cuisine, read the headlines of the Count's newspaper... Casa Parlante is a unique museum: it brings history to life and lets the visitor breathe it in.

    Authentic experience
    Very very nice if you like exploring history and culture of a place. The whole experience takes you back to the 19th century with the help of realistic figures and excellent museum tour guide. Very highly recommend visiting it.

    Slice of history in heart of Old Town
    A little gem for a hot afternoon. Actually whatever the weather this small museum is a wonderful little find. Situated in the heart of the old town it is a slice of Corfu history you shouldn't miss. At only 5 euros each you also get your own tour guide who will talk you through the house showing you how aristocratic families lived in Corfu. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the house is incredibly well looked after. If you want to kill an hour definitely Sony miss this.

    An hour well spent
    You arrive and are put into a group of about 12 other people, you are then assigned a guide for a tour of one floor of the house. Although it’s only a small house there is quite a lot to see & our guide was excellent at explaining everything. I would have liked the opportunity to ask questions at the end or given an explanation as to what the rest of the house was used for.

    Italian guide and nice atmosphere
    My boyfriend and I were strolling around Corfù Town when we found this place. We met Anna, a Greek guide who showed us the house, telling the History of the characters and of every room. It was a really nice experience, also because she spoke in very good Italian. I highly recommend it.

    Amazing living museum
    So glad we visited this amazing living museum. We were greeted by our very knowledgable and friendly guide Joanita who offered us the delicious rose liquor. During the tour of this wonderful old house we were informed how the Corfiot nobility lived in years gone by. Thank you to the wonderful staff for transporting us back in time. So glad we visited Casa Parlante and we thoroughly enjoyed this very interesting tour. A must see when in Kerkyra. Highly recommend.

    Interesting tour of the house
    Interesting to see how the family lived back then. Staff is very friendly and the museum is well looked after. We were offered local treats which was very nice. The tour lasted for about 30 minutes and costs €10 per person. However I am not sure if I would recommend it to friends though.

    A great accidental find
    We found this place on Google Maps. It hasn’t appeared on any of the tourist websites. It is a wealthy family’s residence set out as it would have been 150-200 years ago. We were given an excellent guided tour with great humour and knowledge. The two young ladies that were acting as hosts and guides really showed great enthusiasm for the subject and were happy to explain anything we threw at them. We have visited a number of museums while in Corfu but this was easily our favourite

    Really well organised and insightful
    We loved the experience especially how our young tour guide enthusiastically brought the story to life. The house itself is very interesting with many rooms to see and items left as they were back in the 19th century. We think this is a really good way to spend an hour doing something cultural in the old town.

This was a unique experience, as we never expected that a such small museum could be this fascinating explained and arranged. The guide speeks an impeccable english and takes you on a vivid journey to the urban life of Kerkyra in the 18th century. It was also fun to follow the museum inside from room to room. We highly recommend Casa Parlante!

Im not a fan of XIX century but we gave it a chance. Very atmospheric, educational trip, short enough to not get You bored.
I forgot our guides name but she was a young woman from Thessaloniki. She handled the Tour like a pro, well informed on the topic, answering all our questions and also throwing in Her own thoughts. This worker deserves some recognition from the Museum owners!

Visited Casa Parlante this morning having looked it up on trip advisor. We had our two sons (11 and 13) with us and wanted something about Corfu history but that was interactive. You are guided round and told the stories of the family who lived in the villa. It was really accessible and gave a good insight into the cultural history of an aristocratic family and their servants in 19th century Corfu. Georgia, our guide, was excellent and also very nice. Trip only takes about 30 mins and is well worth it.

What a wonderful museum! I'm impressed beyond words. The guide, Athena, was incredibly helpful, and the tour was quite interesting, with all the interior details and cute animatronic puppets of the residents of the house. Me and my husband learned a lot, and had lots and lots of fun!

Casa parlante is really worth a visit, we loved it! The museum is very interesting, taking you back in time to see how a noble family used to live in Corfu. The experience is also a welcome change from your average museum with a tour guide walking you through the different rooms of the house. Our guide was fantastic - she was so friendly and gave a very detailed tour to us in English. I wish I remembered her name to give her recognition! Thank you.

The description is of robotic characters and of a living museum. Utter nonsense. It was 1/2 hour not the suggested 1 hour and quite boring especially for the children. Very little to see. On the flip side the tour guide was good and friendly but if we’d known how little there was we wouldn’t have paid the 10 euros a head.

Dear Mr Perks, Thank you for taking the time and writing this review further to your recent visit in Casa Parlante! We are very sorry to hear that you find your visit disappointing. However, we would like to clarify some points that might be misleading to our future guests. First of all, it was surprising to read that you thought the tour had the duration of 1 hour instead of half. Before any guest pay the fee for the museum, we give them every necessary details, and that is a standard procedure. And moreover on our website here it is stated that you need less than an hour to see it ( <1). Secondly,you mentioned that visiting the museum is rather boring for the children.The museum was founded in 2014 and since then we have guests that are visiting us, again and again.People that were single and now with their families.The children seem to be having fun especially from the age 4-5 onwards. And it is not by luck that so many schools are visiting as well. Once again, we would like to thank you for visiting Casa Parlante and wish you the very best! The Casa Parlante Team

They provide guided tours in different languages and a welcome drink, of rose liqueur, and a sweet. Your are guided around 10 rooms in a Corfiot aristocratic home set in the mid 1800’s. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. Each room is decorated with period furniture and also contains mannequins, some of which move! These added to the enjoyment although the old lady in the rocking chair is straight out of a horror film.
