Permanent Exhibit

Sitting in a living room during World War Two. Lying on the bunk in a steam ship on your way to America. What did it sound like? What did it feel like?

Experience it in the permanent exhibit “Faces of Freedom: The Czech and Slovak Journey” at National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library. See rare artifacts, experience cutting-edge interactive displays, and celebrate your own culture with exhibits on puppets, music, and art.

Visit the replica of the steerage section of a steamer ship that brought immigrants to America. Stand in Wenceslaus Square amidst shaking keys at the height of the Velvet Revolution. View a Tatra secret police car, an authentic JAWA motorcycle, a replicated communist watch tower, glass, porcelain, and more.

This 7,000-square foot, state of the art exhibit will show you why “Faces of Freedom” is everyone’s story.

    I own a trunk which came on the ship Bremen with the address of the owner clearly written: “Agnes Donat (accent mark on the “a” Velke Kradlice, Bohemia.”
    I would like to donate the artifact to your museum. You would have to pay for special artifact shipping. I could text message photos for your examination. Are you interested?
