The museum collection


The birth house of Maks Pleteršnik with its significant Pleteršnik museum collection is situated in Pišece. Maks Pleteršnik, a Slovene linguist and the author of the Slovene–German dictionary, was born in this house in 1840 and died here in 1923.

The Maks Pleteršnik’s house was completely renovated and rearranged into a museum between the years 1993 and 1994. Today there are three rooms in the house equipped with furniture and personal belongings of Maks Pleteršnik, including his books. The first room presents the forming of Maks Pleteršnik’s dictionary with original materials. Everything here is from the times of Maks Pleteršnik. Moreover, there are also the next two issues of the same dictionary from 1957 and 2006 to be seen here, which is interesting and not many dictionaries reach this. In the second room, there are objects from his study room (office) shown here and on the walls also his dictionary and other work in facsimile (the originals are kept in NUK Ljubljana – the national university library in Ljubljana). The third room authentically represents his place for resting. In the cellar under the rooms or the museum there is an old wine cellar for the guests to visit and get some brochures about Maks Pleteršnik or buy some souvenirs.


The Maks Pleteršnik’s house was acknowledged as a part of the Slovene national cultural heritage.

The backyard proudly shows a stone column with its relief. The Maks Pleteršnik’s house is a part of the Slovene museum collections. The completely renovated house has been recognised as the centre of the village cultural life and the Pišece village with the annual Pleteršnik symposia as the lexicographical centre of Slovenia. My house is your home (Moja hiša je tvoj dom) is a very popular project among people of Slovene origin who live abroad.
