If you have Czech heritage, you should stop here. It's a small museum so it doesn't take very long. The guide is very nice and informative.

I attended a Czech lesson and met really nice, interesting people. Czech pastries and coffee was served. Loved it! There was an article there on the Doctor who took my appendix out in 1956!
