A memorial museum has been set up in the house where the most prominent Slovene poet, Dr. France Prešeren resided from autumn 1846 until February 8, 1849.
A contemporarily conceived permanent exhibition showcases the poet's life and is enhanced by the display of furniture of the period.
When Dr. France Prešeren (1846-1849) lived here, the house was owned by Franc Mayr, a merchant and brewer. The house was rearranged into a museum in 1964 according to the design of the architect Tone Bitenc. On the frontage there is a memorial plaque, unveiled on the centenary of the poet’s birth. The house comprises two parts that were joined in the 17th century, first with a wooden and later, stone arcade hallway. A painting from the 19th century was discovered on the ground floor after the last renovation on the bicentenary of the poet’s birth (2000). Art exhibitions and smaller cultural events take place here, while on the first floor there is a memorial museum with the poet’s original works and valuable early prints as well as a room furnished with original furniture. 
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., closed on Mondays; closed on 1.1., 1.5. and 1.11. Entrance fee: Adults 2.30 EUR, young or retired 1.70 EUR, groups above 10 - adults 1.90 EUR, groups above 10 - young 1.50 EUR, family 4.20 EUR.
