Temple: Czech Heritage Museum & Genealogy Center

From traditionally bedecked hand-carved marionettes from 1875 to military exhibits, an extensive display about family bands and countless Czech artifacts ranging from vintage farming equipment to colorful clothing to home-life displays, the Czech Heritage Museum contains thousands of items related to the Czech experience in Texas. Highlights include a remarkably well-preserved 1549 Bible with its Slavic ink lettering remaining coal black on milky white thin paper, and an impressive library with 23,000 volumes dating from 1737 and the largest collection of Czech-related genealogy in the state.
