In the late 15th century this originally Gothic castle was bought by the House of Pernštejn. The only preserved Gothic part is the angle tower in the south-western part of the building, a dominant feature of the chateau as well as the city.

In the early 17th century the chateau was purchased by Karl the Elder of Žerotín, who completed the redevelopment of the castle into a four-wing, Renaissance chateau. The moat from the 16th century has also been preserved. Further building conversions of both the interiors and the exteriors were executed in the first half of the 19th century. The chateau now houses the Museum of Comenius and the City of Přerov Gallery.

The Comenius Museum features eighteen permanent displays. A reconstruction of a 17th-century classroom is the first of several permanent installations devoted to school and education. The room is arranged according to pictures drawn by Comenius. His life is commemorated by a separate comprehensive exhibition called the "John Amos Comenius Memorial," which comprises numerous objects, artworks and information relating to this important historical personality. The museum also features the following displays: Teachers, the Propagators of Comenius' Thoughts; Classroom and Teacher's Room from the Austro-Hungarian Era; Classroom from the First Czechoslovak Republic Era (1918-1938); Classroom from the 1950s. Three thematic areas constitute other comprehensive displays, the "Ethnography of Haná and Záhoří." Unique collections of insects and rocks and minerals are displayed in the "Entomology" and "Mineralogy" sections. The display "Přerov Area Resistance 1914-1989" shows documents, news reports and photographs in connection with the fates of specific people. The observation tower with vedutas of the town of Přerov from 1593-1940 is the rest area of the museum.
