The Czech Cultural Center celebrates the culture of Bohemia, Moravia, Slovakia and Silesia with events and exhibitions. The center features language classes, a museum, archives, genealogy resources, event facilities, library and an ecumenical chapel.

Exhibits include Czech crystal, glass, porcelain, pottery, antique furniture, jewelry, folk costumes and fine art.

A permanent exhibit opened in February 2010 features a 1,200-piece collection of Czechoslovakian porcelain, pottery and glass, produced only for a 20-year period between the World Wars. The factories which made these pieces were either destroyed by the Nazis or made into munitions factories, and the pieces were not produced thereafter.

The Czech Center's collection includes several types of pieces: Amphora, most prized as only one company produced it; Erphila, also highly sought; some Peasant Art and hand-blown Art Glass. All pieces are recognized by artist and site of origin.
