Palace of St Michael & St George

Originally the residence of a succession of British high commissioners, this palace now houses the world-class Museum of Asian Art, founded in 1929. Expertly curated with extensive, informative English-language placards, the collection’s approximately 10,000 artifacts, collected from all over Asia, include priceless prehistoric bronzes, ceramics, jade figurines, coins and works of art in onyx, ivory and enamel. Additionally, the palace’s throne room and rotunda are impressively adorned in period furnishings and art.
Behind the eastern side of the palace, the Municipal Art Galleryhouses a fine collection featuring the work of leading Corfiot painters, a collection of splendid icons, rotating exhibitions, and a lovely seafront cafe.
