Lam Dong (VNA) – More than 1,000 antique items portraying life in Da Lat City, the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, in the past are on display from December 22.

The exhibition is among a series of events to celebrate the 2015 Da Lat Flower Festival from December 29, 2015 to January 2, 2016.

The items are displayed at an old villa, which was once the official residence of the mayor of Da Lat and also head of Tuyen Duc province, in a pine hill looking the city’s downtown.

They include vintage cameras and cinema equipment, cassette players, televisions, paintings, photos and clothing of local people from the old times. The majority of them were donated.

Nguyen Vu Hoang, Director of the Lam Dong Culture Centre, said the exhibition will be a place for visitors who love to explore the old resort city.

Admission is free to all, he added.

The Culture Centre also opens art concerts every night where songs and poems by well-known classical composers – Trinh Cong Son, Ngo Thuy Mien, Vu Thanh An and Pham Duy – are performed.-VNA
