Doors Open Toronto

This upcoming weekend is Doors Open Toronto! Don’t know what that means? Don’t worry – I think you’ll like it!
Doors Open is a program that allows everyday average people to visit buildings and spaces in their communities that they otherwise may never have a chance to explore. Doors Open started in France in 1984 and first happened in Toronto in 2000. Not in Toronto ; not to worry as there are tons of different communities throughout Ontario that run events. Hop on over to the Doors Open Ontario page to find some more locations!

The great thing about this event is there can be a location for everyone! I know people always say that but I really mean it! Different locations do have different opening hours so just because your visiting on Sunday does not mean that every building you have on your list is open on Sunday.

I find the City of Toronto page about Doors Open to be the most helpful; or also The Toronto Star runs a full section including a map and mini write ups about each location. I’ve already started to make my list of places I want to visit on Saturday! Some of those places include –

City of Toronto Archives , Dineen Building ,Canadian Music Centre (Chalmers House) ,  Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre , and maybe even the John St Roundhouse !

Too many great places to choose from and not enough time! Last year my favourite stop had to be the Canada Life building – the view is amazing! I might have to stop there again this year!

If you could explore any building in Toronto what would it be? Have you made your must visit list for this years event yet?
