The ethnographic photographic collection of the Náprstek Museum has two sets of photographic material documenting an excursion to North Africa, which was organized mainly for teachers in 1936 by the Excursion Department of the Central Association of Teachers in the Moravian-Silesian Lands. The main destinations of the excursion were Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. In 1961, the Náprstek Museum received a set of postcards which was collected by the writer Sida Volfová during the excursion. In the 1970s, teacher Karel Křížek donated three photo albums and loose photographs which he took during the excursion to the museum. Together with other preserved documents, it was possible to accurately reconstruct the course of the excursion and evaluate everything from both a geographic and thematic perspective.
