The project will offer a closer look at the creation of the Czechoslovak army in 1918 in the territory of France, making it one of the attributes of the new republic, stated the Slovak National Museum (SNM), one of the partners, as reported by the TASR newswire.

"The Musée Tchécoslovaque (the Czechoslovak Museum) has existed since 1938, thanks to representatives of the local government," the SNM said, as quoted by TASR.

A fresh look

The museum has recently received a generous private donation, which has allowed for a complete reconstruction of the interior and a change of the exhibition and lighting, SNM added.

"It also provided the opportunity to have a fresh look at the now morally outdated exhibition," SNM noted, as quoted by TASR.

The museum should be open on June 30, i.e. on the 103rd anniversary of Raymond Poincaré, president of the French Republic, presenting the battle flag to the Czechoslovak army.

Apart from SNP, the project partners include the local government in Darney, the Slovak Institute in Paris, the Czech Embassy in Paris, the Czech Center in Paris, the Prague National Museum, and the Moravian Museum in Brno.
