Doors Open

Doors Open is a yearly event during which many buildings open their doors to the public and allow visitors in for free. It is a great opportunity to see heritage sites that you would otherwise be unable to visit. The concept of doors open started out years ago in Europe and has now spread all over the world.

Doors Open Toronto is happening this weekend, on May 25th and 26th. The list of buildings participating in the event can be found here. Not all buildings are open on both days, so it is a good idea to plan your day before heading out.

Not in Toronto this weekend? No problem! Numerous other cities in Ontario also participate in this event. More information on specific dates, cities, and participating buildings can be found on the Doors Open Ontario website.

Dates for some of the Doors Open events happening this year:

Toronto – May 25 and 26
