  • Love this place because it shows real historical and relevant artifacts and not just about Czech's but also Texans of all walks of life. 
  • If you have Czech heritage, you should stop here. It's a small museum so it doesn't take very long. The guide is very nice and informative. 
  • I attended a Czech lesson and met really nice, interesting people. Czech pastries and coffee was served. Loved it! There was an article there on the Doctor who took my appendix out in 1956! 
  • This is a little gem of a museum. If you're at all interested in the story of the Czech and Slovak people who emigrated to Texas, you should stop in. Most of the displays can be touched (Please leave the Edison Gramophone cylinders alone... those are out in the open, but are irreplaceable!) and a few of the really old machines are in working order. They include a 9 minute video that's full of information, and some really nice artifacts. If you have any interest in genealogy, and are of Texas Czech descent, you also might want to visit. Finally, the gift shop has some cute pieces. For $4 a head, you get a knowledgeable guided tour. Totally great way to waste an hour and a half or so.
  • Amazing little gem of a museum. Great displays and very informative tour guide. Super stop.
