For the collection, the following rooms were arranged: the entrance hall, the open-hearth kitchen, the hiša (living room) and the kamra (bedroom). The ambience of the open-hearth kitchen and hiša is enhanced by original furnishings from the early 20th century and is regularly turned into a "live" museum where bread is baked, fruit dried on the tiled stove, and the table laid with home-made farm products. In the kamra there is a reconstruction of the writer's study with original pieces of furniture, clothes and some personal belongings, plus an exhibition of most of Jalen's literary legacy (manuscripts, letters, awards, literary works and his library).
