In the memorial house of the poet Oton Župančič in Vinica, meet the giant of Slovenian modernity. The exhibition Župančič - a master of words presents one of the most important Slovenian poets and an outstanding translator and essayist who was a sworn native of Bela krajina. The exhibitions Vinica - centuries by the Kolpa River and Meritorious People of Bela krajina are also on display.
In the house, we offer a guided tour of the exhibition Župančič - a master of words, both for school groups and the general public. Visitors learn about the life of Oton Župančič and his works, as well as puzzles, which are specially exposed in the outdoor apiary.
We organize various creative workshops, which we adapt according to the age of the children and the current monthly theme.
In addition to guiding you around the exhibition in the house, we also take care of an additional program and occasional exhibitions that you can see during the tours. Currently, there is an temporary exhibition IMAGES OF OTON ŽUPANČIČ, prepared in cooperation with the Museum of Recent and Contemporary History of Slovenia. The exhibition was created on the occasion of the 145th anniversary of the birth of Oton Župančič and shows the social engagement of the poet during his career.
We invite you to visit our museum shop during opening hours, where you can find gifts for your loved ones or take home a souvenir that will remind you of a pleasant visit to the house.
