Visited West Seattle’s Vietnamese Cultural Center lately?

Looking for something to do tomorrow? The Vietnamese Cultural Center at 2236 SW Orchard (north of Home Depot; here’s a map) reminds us that it’s open to the public noon-3 pm every Saturday. The center shared photos from last weekend’s sunny Saturday, including the next one featuring visitor Don Atwood, a local architect who helped draft an addition to the center:

Director Ducly Bui summarizes the center’s mission:

Vietnamese Cultural Center is operated by the free South Vietnamese since April 1975 to promote Vietnamese culture and heritage to their children born in US and introduce the country’s history and arts to the local community.

Admission is free. Our previous coverage of the center includes an overview in July 2008 – after many had wondered about its large statue (General Tran Hung Dao) – and last year’s Lunar New Year event, which also celebrated recognition of the Vietnamese Heritage and Freedom Flag.

    I didn’t know what that was – I’ll have to check it out.

    We hope to have a place to remember our ancestors, our Vietnamese cultures.

    Thanks Bui Duc Ly’s family.
    Thanks all of To Dinh members

    I have been to the Vietnames Cultural Center for several important events. Every time I visit something new has been added to the Center.
    Thank you for sharing. I plan to visit again, very soon.
