After two years of construction, the Children’s House in the Croatian city of Rijeka has finally been completed. In a press release, the Municipality of Rijeka announced that the establishment will open its doors on 26 March.

In addition to this, the Children’s House is inviting citizens to attend free, guided tours from Saturday 27 March to Thursday 1 April. These tours have been organised for small groups of approximately twenty people who will be expected to comply with the epidemiological measures that are currently in force.

What will the tours offer?

The Children’s House is a four-storey building that provides a plethora of cultural and educational activities. As such, the tours aim to show citizens everything that the establishment can offer.

Visitors will first be able to see the "Works in Progress… Greetings from Benčić" exhibition which will be set up in the Gallery of the Children’s House on the first floor. This exhibition will showcase works created by children during workshops at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in 2020.

On the second floor, visitors will be able to view several short, animated films organised by the Art Cinema. Some of these films include Black Wolf, White Wolf by Ivana Guljašević Kuman, Atelier by Bianca Mansani, and Lynx in the City by Nina Bisiarina.

In addition to this, the City Library of Rijeka has also organised a display of 3D printing on the second floor. Taking this further, the third floor of the building will house the Stribor Children’s Department of the Rijeka City Library.

The fourth floor, also known as "The Container", will offer visitors a five-minute scene from the play Puppet Theatre, a Puppet Classroom, a ten-minute puppet show, and a five-minute scene from the Theatre Mania play.
