We've lived in the area for three years and finally got around to visiting this museum. The people at the front desk we're wonderful and friendly - they even offered to take our picture under the beautiful entry chandelier. Exhibits were fun and informative. We enjoyed the films and the exhibit on communism. The baby in costumes photo exhibit was pretty cute as well. A great place to spend a few hours! Be
Great place to learn about ethic Czech culture and history. My family and I have been traveling around visiting museums and learning about all the ethnic groups of the US and the world and learning their cultures and histories. As a black woman with mixed children I am thankful for places like this. I want my children to see that white people have amazing multiple cultures and wonderful history. They never get to see any of it from schools or the media.
