We had our wedding at the museum this past September and it was amazing! The staff was so friendly and great to work with, they were very accommodating to us… The staff was so organized and efficient that it really made our day go very smoothly. We had so many compliments on our venue, on how unique and pretty it was. I just love our ceremony pictures from the grand hall, the backdrop is stunning. Would recommend the museum to anyone with a special event! – Emily S. 

The Czech Museum was amazing to work with! And, it is hands down the best place to host company events. They responded quickly to every need and bent over backwards to create the perfect environment for all our employees. It made our Manager Training so much more enjoyable and planning was a breeze with the awesome museum staff! Thank you!! – Lynette C. 

Our company decided to host an employee luncheon at the National Czech & Slovak Museum. What a beautiful venue! The event went smoothly thanks to the help of the wonderful staff. They made planning easy and were very accommodating. We’ll be back! – Nick L.
