Magnet – Czech – National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library
National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library 2″ x 3″ magnet
Situated on the banks of the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library. The museum was flooded out in 2008. The board decided to have the building moved. The building weighed 3 million pounds and the monumental move started on June 8, 2011. On May 8, 2012, the museum had a grand opening celebration.
The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Libary museum celebrates life. Czech life. Slovak life. American life. They are a museum that encourages self-discovery, a museum that asks what it means to be free. Through extraordinary exhibitions and experiences, they tell the stories of freedom and identity, family and community, human rights and dignity. The stories connect yesterday with today and tomorrow.
