Manuscripts, letters, photographs, books, furniture and other items of interest from his private and personal life make up the house-museum's collection. The centre also offers facilities for cultural activities, such as a projection room, conference hall, multi-purpose hall and library, in addition to a garden and terrace complementing the grounds.
