This fairly significant collection area came about through unsystematic collecting as of the founding of the Town Museum in Přerov in the year 1902. 

The particular items included into the collections originate from the period of the 19th - 20th centuries. The greatest part come from the territory of Moravia, with significant numbers coming from the region of Přerov as well.
