Architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings will be open for your viewing pleasure for one weekend. These buildings are so special they’d usually be closed off to the public.

Last year, the theme was Film. Important cinemas, studios, and production houses were made public. This year it’s “20 Something,” celebrating the first 20 years of Doors Open Toronto while looking forward to the next 20 years.

No need to hop fences, jimmy locks, or awkwardly use your phone flashlight. Just turn up and check out some of the most important spaces in the city!


When: Saturday, May 25 & Sunday, May 26
