The New York City landmark Bohemian National Hall is opening its doors for guided tours during OHNY Weekend, its 7th year offering the rare opportunity to see the building.
The Czech Center New York, in cooperation with Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association (BBLA), the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York and the Dvořák American Heritage Association (DAHA) will offer in-person guided tours of the historical building. The tour will include the Dvořák Room, the exhibition space of the Dvořák American Heritage Association (DAHA) to commemorate the 130th Anniversary of Antonín Dvořák's arrival to the US in September 1892.
The Bohemian National Hall has been an important center for Czech and Slovak culture in New York City for more than 100 years. Since its beginning, it has served as a focal point for its community, offering ethnic food, Czech language and history classes as well as space for its large community to meet and hold various events. Today, the Bohemian National Hall is a significant reminder of the major working-class ethnic enclave that once flourished in Yorkville and stands as a monument to an important aspect of the history of immigrants in New York City and the United States.
Tours through the Bohemian National Hall will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis approximately every 20 minutes on Sunday.
