The sub-collection of musical instruments is made up of a small set predominantly collected by Vocel Archaeological Society and the museum society in Uhlířské Janovice. The majority of the musical instruments is directly related to our region, either through its production or their origin. Among the musical instruments made in the Kutná Hora region are for instance the trumpet made by Josef Šťastný or the barrel organ made by Jan Paštyka from Čestín. On the contrary, the instruments which have their origin in the Kutná Hora region are represented by the hurdy-gurdy of the beggar Antonín Janeček from Církvice near Uhlířské Janovice or the zither belonging to the blind man Strachovský. The set of four horns belonging to the bellmen from Mitrov, Žandov, Nepoměřice and Lažice would probably fall into both categories.

In cooperation with the professionals from the Czech Museum of Music in Prague, the originally larger collection was split into the regional section and the section that is not related to the region. The latter was subsequently discarded and transferred to the collections of the Czech Museum of Music.

Currently, the sub-collection consists of 18 collection items.
