About

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 new permanent exhibit Faces of Freedom: The Czech and Slovak Journey at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and 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.
