The Czech and Slovak National Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa will reopen on July 14, four years after it was damaged by floods. The museum was relocated to a different site and expanded to include new galleries and a theatre. The Czech ambassador to the United States, Petr Gandalovič, plans to attend the opening, the local news website The Gazette reported. Around 25 million dollars were raised for the renovation of the museum, which opened in 1974 to showcase the traditions of Czech and Slovak immigrants to the region. The Czech Republic contributed more than 400,000 dollars to the project.
