Nice large building, open floorplan. Nominal tour fee of $6.00/USD per person. One floor has a beautiful ballroom with dance floor and nice windows. There are two gorgeous crystal chandeliers in this ballroom. This room also has beautiful artwork along the walls. We were given a marvelous tour of the entire facility by one of the docents who went to... More

Took my Brother & Sister-in-Law for the tour, I had been there before. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke Czech as well. All of us were very impressed and will retun again. Real value for the small tour fee.

Museum contains a lot about history of Czech Republic, staff was very friendly. But there is nothing about present of Czech Republic.

We recently visited the Czech Center in Houston. The building and artifacts were beautiful. I wish that there was information on Czech sports teams - especially soccer. It would be nice if they played Czech music, as well. They had some lovely items in the gift shop but t-shirts and lower priced items would be appreciated for those of us... More

They have great Czech paintings displayed along with collected glassware. They are eager to show you around for a tour and answer any questions. I was impressed with their knowledge of Czech history. Cute gift shop.

I planned and booked to have my wedding here and it was a nightmare!! Everyone was great to meet, and very kind. Being knowledgeable in events I asked important questions about dance floor, linens,... More

I was a little disappointed by the Czech Center Museum. The building is quite large, but a lot of the space is banquet space that the museum rents for special events. I just did not find a whole lot of interest, although I did enjoy some of the paints, and there were a few other interesting things there. Given the... More

You don't have to be of Czech, Slovak or Slavic to enjoy the grandeur of this fine museum and meeting place. For a modest fee, one can enjoy the many varied examples of extraordinary Czech crystal, fine table ware, elaborate embroidery and paintings by many different artists. One can spend an hour or a day exploring the facility. One can... More
