Director emeritus of the museum has been the administrator of the extensive historic collection since 1992. It comprises 26,000 collection objects in twelve thousand record items. It documents the time period from the end of the 18th century till the present time. As for the territory, it covers the district and the town of Písek with overreach to the historic Práche�? region.

In the post-war years, the historic collections were not classified thematically or chronologically. Their part related to collection for the prepared Monument of Resistance Movement in the Práche�? Region was liquidated in 1941. And the same happened in the 1950s together with objects of the religious character. The last confiscation affected the military exhibits. Frequent, particularly the exposition and exhibition presentation led to its gradual detachment. The government decree providing for documentation of the present times and the new exposition in 1984 contributed to its cataloguing.  The collection fund from the delimited Monument of the Town of Protivín was attached. In 1990s, “empty” spaces were completed and the ideologically motivated losses and gaps were restored. This includes e. g.  publishing outputs from documentation collected by his predecessor, Mr Zden�?k Jíša, regarding legionaries and pilots in WWII from the Písek Region.
This living fund grows by about one hundred objects a year. Various three-dimensional objects are represented, as well as manuscripts, books, facsimiles, etc. Acquisitions of photographs have been limited since 2007 (at present, photographs are included, starting on 15. 3. 1939).The responsibility of the department includes time-consuming compulsory revisions, maintenance and improvement of the material nature of the objects and extensive research agenda. Recently the collection has been aimed at the Písek area studies - years 1945 and 1968.The section is presented by three rooms in the Regional History exposition, also by the respective section in the Monument of the Town of Protivín and involvement in temporary museum exhibitions.
