Who doesn't like to take a peek at something that has been hidden? We are curious beings by nature and when someone hides something from us - well, we just love to find out what the big secret is all about.
Doors Open Toronto is this wonderful opportunity to see and be inside buildings we just can't get into most of the time. Toronto was the first city in North America to launch this prestigious event dedicated to built heritage, architecture and design.
The 14th annual Doors Open offers everyone an opportunity to take a peek behind the doors of over 150 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, 2013. Developed as a millennium project in 2000 by the City of Toronto, Doors Open Toronto has since attracted over 1.5 million visitors to hundreds of buildings throughout the city.
Want to have a peek before Doors Open? Come to the Toronto Reference Library, Humanities and Social Sciences on the 2nd floor. Look for the Toronto Collection by the Reference Desk. Have a look at some of our Toronto architecture and history books.
