The appeal of Doors Open Ontario is multi-fold. Yes, visitors to any of the event’s 800 sites are provided an opportunity to learn about history, culture, and architecture, but they are also given the chance to indulge their voyeurism, no sneaking required, with many sites offering tours, lectures, exhibits, and performances, to better explore the stories inside.
Having contributed of $13.1 million to local economies since launching in 2002, the free event also supports the communities it reveals. On until October across Ontario (with Toronto opening up May 26 and 27) Doors Open Ontario anticipates this year’s most popular exhibits, from former spy training grounds to massive temples, above.
