The heirs of poet Oton Župančič two sons and a daughter bequeathed their fathers legacy to the City Museum of Ljubljana. The legacy was displayed at the museum as the Župančič Memorial Collection from 1 October 1985 to 2000.
The display is an accurate re-creation of the poets home at 8 Veselova ulica in Ljubljana: the room to the right exhibits the artists study, which became, towards the end of his life, his bedroom; the room to the left represents the reception room with a library. In addition to many books, both furnished rooms feature some art works by Župančičs contemporaries (Kobilca, Jakopič, Maleš, Dolinar). Panels and showcases present the poets life and work: his writing, personal objects, awards, gifts, and his drawings and watercolours.
