If you haven't already, you should check out the Czech History Museum right here in our own backyard.

If you're new to Central Texas and you are kind of wondering who some of the early immigrants were that help settle the area in 1800's, all you have to do is take a little drive to Downtown Temple and take a tour.

The Czech Heritage Museum and Genealogy Center in Temple is sporting over 30,000 artifacts that honor the early immigrants that took a "Czance" on Texas.

The museum covers everything from traditional clothing, to the Czech health and wellness program, or Sokol.

With a trip to the Czech Heritage Museum and Genealogy Center you'll see that their heritage is well preserved. Maybe even better here than in the old country!

So stop by and take a look around. Maybe you'll have a craving for a nice Kolache and a bottle of Pivo.
