Our annual Summer Family Free Day at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) offers a unique opportunity for families to enjoy the museum free of charge. Attendees can enjoy a full day of family-friendly activities, visits to the NCSML’s galleries, live music and food. Both admission to the NCSML’s galleries and the activities are free and open to the public.
The Summer Family Free Day program, which started in 2015 with Root Beer Fest followed by the Andy Warhol Birthday Celebration in 2016, and a focus on the spectacular art glass of Dale Chihuly in 2017, attracts around 1,500 to 2,000 visitors to the NCSML. This year’s theme revolved around the 1910s as a decade of innovation, tying into World War I and the time period of the NCSML’s ongoing exhibition Guts & Glory: The War Train that Shaped a Nation. Activities included 1910s-inspired community crafts, face painting and an obstacle course.
