Museum dedicated to Alice Masaryk opens in Lány

A new museum has been opened in Lány near Prague dedicated to Alice Masaryk, daughter of first Czechoslovak president T.G. Masaryk, and the Czech Red Cross, which she headed. It is in a building where Alice Masaryk lived and is near the presidential retreat in Lány.

The museum contains some of Alice Masaryk’s original furniture and equipment from an advice centre for mothers with children that operated at her home for over 60 years.

The institution is run by the T.G. Masaryk Museum in nearby Rakovník.
