Members of the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library receive admission to our exhibits, subscriptions to our biannual journal (Slovo) and our bi-annual newsletter (MOST), enrollment in our Time Travelers Program (including benefits at 100+ museums), and access to members-only events.
Without our members, sponsors, and other supporters, we would not be where we are today. We have made it our mission to ensure that the culture, people, and histories are celebrated, embraced, and shared — your support helps us accomplish that mission.
It is with the help of our dedicated volunteers that the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library continues to serve the community. We have tasks to engage all ages and abilities levels. Our volunteers reported advancing their communication skills and acquiring job skills.
