In 2009 the City Museum of Ljubljana and the City Art Gallery Ljubljana merged into a new public institute called the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana (MGML). The merger was part of the Municipality of Ljubljana's cultural development plans for 2008–2011, endorsed in June 2008.

Louis Adamič Memorial Room

Louis Adamic Memorial Room - 03.JPG

The Louis Adamič Memorial Room is housed in Praproče, the birthplace of Louis Adamič (1898–1951), a Slovene writer who spent most of his life in the USA after emigrating there in 1913 at the age of 14. Known in the United States as Adamic (a-dam'ik), his literature dealt with the social and political issues of both countries (for example, Dynamite, The Native's Return, The Eagle and the Roots).

The collections of Adamič's legacy are dispersed throughout various archives in Slovenia and the USA. The most important is the one at Princeton University (books from his own library, manuscripts and correspondence, clippings). In Slovenia, the memorial room is placed in the tower of the country mansion in Praproče, where Adamič spent his childhood.
