The house, the largest cultural centre for children in the city, is located on 11,655 square metres of land on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, in District 3. It includes five storeys, an underground car park, and 40 function rooms for theatre, music, arts and sports activities.
It has a meeting hall with 500 seats and a 3D screening room with 150 seats. Its outside area, decorated with trees and flowers, can serve 1,000 children. The city spent more than VND135 billion (US$5.9 million) to upgrade the house, which first opened in May 1975. “The house is decorated to help children develop their dreams and talents. We feature a variety of cultural and educational programmes meeting different tastes of local children”, director Pham Ngoc Tuyen said.
Children, particularly those living in rural districts, will have more opportunities to enjoy the finer things in life through quality entertainment programmes and festivals this summer. Along with many activities, short-term courses in dance, music, circus and fashion design taught by the house’s experts and artists from prestigious art schools will be offered to children.
Many of the training courses in art, computers and foreign languages offer reasonable fees, between VND300,000 (US$13) to 600,000 ($26), for one to three months. Some programmes will be free, while other performances cost from VND20,000 ($0.8) to 50,000 ($2.2) per ticket.
The Children’s House of HCM City is not alone in its campaign to keep children entertained. More than 24 cultural houses for children in districts around the city have worked to improve their offerings. Underprivileged children will receive discounted or free services when registering for classes or programs at the center.
The centres have collaborated with local offices and organisations to raise money to offer free quality programmes for thousands of children each year. They also provide music and dance training courses as well as free art performances and picnics. The Children’s House is considered the most modern of its kind in Ho Chi Minh City and easily in Vietnam.
