doors open

does your town or area have a Doors Open?
visitors allowed free access to buildings usually not open to the public 
(or free access to museums and cultural sites) 
celebrating our architectural heritage.

this program should be adopted by all other cities. i think this is a very worthy project.

We have this in The Netherlands as well, I think it's a very good thing.

Free access to museums and cultural sites would be a welcome change here.

I love Doors Open! This year I only managed one day in Toronto and chose the west end.

This is a great idea! I never heard of it before. I, too, think that all cities should adopt this idea.

We don't have an Open Doors scheme - thought we should - but we have an Open Gardens scheme - where gardens are open in Spring that are not usually accessible to the public. This includes gardens of celebrities!

Pickering had it's first one last fall. I found the tour very interesting.

They do have sometimes, not on a regular basis. But only a few.
