Ninety eight objects connected with the life and work of the well-known Dubrovnik and Croatian writer are kept in this collection. Most of the collection consists of objects from the Vojnović bequest, lovingly cared for by his brother Lujo, and brought to Dubrovnik with the intention that a museum should be opened dedicated to Ivo’s life and work.
The personal bequest consists of diverse commendations that Vojnović received during his lifetime (silver laurel wreaths, decorations from various countries); his personal effects (spectacles, dominos and so on); photographs, notes, drawings and sketches, as well as the correspondence that he kept up with many familiar figures from public life, in Dubrovnik, to which he was particularly tied, and elsewhere in Europe.
Also kept in the collection are objects that document the work of the initiative committee for the founding of a Vojnović Museum in the parish house on Mihajlo, so that, as a whole, it represents a reference unit for the study of the life of Ivo Vojnović.
As well as objects that belong to the Vojnović estate, the collection is supplemented with some given to the museum by Božo Glavić, distinguished Dubrovnik museum professional and one-time manager of the Cultural History Museum.
