The National Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in the United States, is going to move to a new location. The museum’s director, Gail Naughton, told a local radio station that the institute would move due the high risk of floods in the area. The museum was heavily damaged by flooding in June 2008 which destroyed the library and displays about the history of Czech and Slovak minorities in the US. The museum, which was founded in 1995 and attracted some 35,000 visitors each year, is expected to re-open at the new location within three to five years’ time.
