Owner description: "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.

My wife and I happened on this little gem of a museum a few days ago when calling into port on a cruise. It became the highlight of our day and following our visit we passed on some leaflets to other cruise passengers! The museum had only been opened for 10 days. The staff were very informative, friendly and enthusiastic. The experience felt very much as though we were transported back in time to the early 19th Century where, with the help of robotic models, we were given a sense of what life was really like for the family of the local nobility. A lot of work had obviously gone into depicting everyday life in an authentic way. At the time of our visit, the museum was awaiting some signage to be afixed to the outside of the premises so that visitors would be aware of it and hopefully this will soon be in place. It would have been quite easy to have walked past the building, oblivious to its existence (there are stairs to the first floor). There is a nominal fee. We unhesitatingly recommend a visit!
