Kojákovice Peasant & Emigration Museum
When you come to the Czech Republic,
we are worth a visit
The Kojákovice Peasant and Emigration Museum
Kojakovice, South Bohemia, Czech Republic
"Some of the stories we tell you should sound familiar;
it could have easily concerned your ancestors".
The Kojákovice Peasant and Emigration Museum tells about how people lived and worked in the rural South Bohemia of a century and more ago. It also explains reasons for emigration to the USA and Canada, and the fate of the Czech emigrants on the great plains of the Midwest. All the displays are based upon the history and stories of persons from Kojákovice and its surroundings. The stories of the settlers were mostly told through letters of the settlers themselves and stories of their descendants.
