The birth house of Hugo Wolf, the world-renowned
composer of Late Romantic art songs and a complex personage of fin-de-siècle
Vienna, accommodates the Hugo Wolf Memorial Museum as well as the Hugo Wolf
International Documentation Information Centre comprising central archives on
the late Hugo Wolf. The centre is an international hub and coordination place
for numerous Hugo Wolf societies around the world.
The memorial exhibition, displayed in a late-19th
century middle-class living environment, presents Wolf's life and work
throughout all distinctive periods of his active and extravagant but also
tragic life. Special attention is paid to his childhood in Slovenj Gradec, the
living conditions in his hometown, as well as to the life of his family.
