The House of Culture (La Casa de Cultura) operated by the Municipal Institute of Culture (Instituto Municipal de la Cultura) is the center of cultural activities for the Zihuatanejo area, offering various classes and workshops in art, dance, music, and theater. Children and youth have an opportunity to learn about their cultures, and develop their artistic talents and expressions.
Every Sunday, La Casa de Cultura also provides free entertainment for the residents and visitors to the Zihuatanejo area at the cancha muncipal (main basketball court) along the beachfront.
