In 2013 the Rudolf Maister Birthplace was opened in a renovated 19th Century house in Kamnik as a branch of the Kamnik Intermunicipal Museum.
Slovene general, patriot, poet and bibliophile Rudolf Maister (1874–1934) was born in Kamnik. He played a crucial role in Styria and Carinthia after the World War One: in November 1918 Maister organised local volunteers to liberate the city of Maribor in time when the northern border of the newly established State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs was outlined.
The exhibition features photographs from family albums, military portraits and personal documents, honorary awards, diplomas and medals as well as screenings of numerous documentaries and art films related to the general. A special section presents Maister's personal library and his literary creativity.
