About Doors Open Milwaukee  (website)

Doors Open Milwaukee is Historic Milwaukee’s most ambitious project. As a nonprofit organization, Historic Milwaukee, Inc. has been dedicated to increasing awareness of and commitment to Milwaukee’s history, architecture, and the preservation of our built environment through education and advocacy since 1974.

The sixth annual Doors Open Milwaukee event will open the doors to over 150 wonderful buildings free-of-charge to the public –buildings that hold hidden treasures and special stories – from churches to office buildings, theaters to work sites, museums to hotels, clubs to universities; all sites of historic, architectural, cultural, or commercial interest.

The event has two major components: 1)  design your own itinerary to visit over 150 buildings that will open their doors (often with guided tours, no tickets necessary); 2) join one or more in-depth tours that are ticketed (find details under the “Event Guide – In-Depth Tours” section of this website.)
