The ethnographic collections of the district museum come mainly from the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Czechoslovakia.

The collection mostly documents the 19th century and the 1st half of the 20th century. The ethnographic collection has been created gradually since the foundation of Vocel Archaeological Society in 1877. Its considerable part comprises of the collection items from the museums in Vlastějovice and Uhlířské Janovice, both of which have been closed down.

The museum’s ethnographic collection includes particularly some home kitchenware and farming tools.
