The National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library is a treasure and is of great interest and value to all of those of Czech or Slovak heritage. The NCSML was accredited by the American Alliance of Museums in November of 2008. The NCSML became a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2019. It has reopened and if you have a chance to visit, and it is safe for you to do so, it would be well worth your while!



The NCSML preserves, presents, and transcends unique stories of Czech and Slovak history and culture through innovative experiences and active engagement to reach cross-cultural audiences locally, nationally, and internationally.



The NCSML is an innovative leader in lifelong learning, community building, and cultural connections. We encourage self-discovery for all ages so that the stories of freedom, identity, family, and community will live on for future generations.
