The beginnings of the museum in Vysoké Mýto reach as far back as the 19th century and are associated with the personality Karlouš Richter, an educated miller from Sárovka, councilor and chronicler of Vysoké Mýto. In 1859, he saved the documents from the municipal archive from being destroyed and through Alois Vojtěch Šembera, he managed to persuade the former mayor to free up a room at the town hall for the storage of the documents. At Richter's proposal, the town also established a museum along with this room in 1871 and entrusted this particular councilor with its administration. The museum in Vysoké Mýto is the oldest institution of its kind in the country.
