The 10th annual Doors Open Winnipeg event takes place Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26. The event–organized by Heritage Winnipeg– showcases over 80 buildings and sites. Get the full picture on dozens of unique and historic buildings. Doors Open has spread around the world since the 1980s and first came to Canada in 2000.
Offerings in the neighbourhood of the City of Winnipeg Assessment Department office include the iconic Bank of Montreal at Portage and Main, the Firefighters Museum at 56 Maple Street and the Paterson Global Foods Institute (the former Union Bank tower). Further afield you can check out author Gabrielle Roy’s former home in St Boniface or the 1883 Lieutenant Governor’s residence on Kennedy or the new Hydro Building. The Free Press usually publishes a program.
