There is a really nice museum in Cedar Rapids – The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library. I don’t have Czech or Slovak ancestry, but I’ve been to Czech Republic several times and have been to Bratislava (capital of Slovakia) and LOVE that part of the world.
I don’t have any pictures inside the building…they have different exhibits throughout the year and a fantastic gift shop. Website: http://www.ncsml.org
Nearby is Czech Village. It’s a street with several antique shops and restaurants. It’s a nice place for an afternoon stroll and some shopping.
