The NCSML publishes a bi-annual journal, Slovo and a newsletter, MOST, which is published twice a year.

We are a museum that celebrates life. Czech life. Slovak life. American life. We are a museum that encourages self-discovery, a museum that asks what it means to be free. Through extraordinary exhibitions and experiences, we tell stories of freedom and identity, family and community, human rights and dignity. Our stories connect yesterday with today and tomorrow.

A few days ago I wrote to you about Slovo and that you should be commended for the excellent job. I was wrong. I just finished reading both issues; they are not excellent…..they are superb.
