Doors Open Ottawa returns this weekend

Celebrating its 21st anniversary, Doors Open is a two-day event that allows you to explore embassies, museums, hospitals, and places of worship.

Residents have a chance to walk through some of Ottawa’s most unique buildings and explore the city’s history, culture and architecture on Saturday and Sunday.

With more than 80 buildings to explore in the city with some that aren’t normally open to the public, for free.

“It’s a huge honor to be able to open the doors once a year and invite people in to have a look around,” said Susannah Goshko, British High Commissioner to Canada. “We are really looking forward to it.

This year, Doors Open Ottawa is back to in-person visits but also offers virtual options for some locations.

Advance registration is required to visit some buildings like the Diefenbunker, Earnscliffe National Historic Site of Canada, the Embassy of Hungary to Canada/Birkett Castle, the French Embassy in Canada, and the University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre.

The event runs on June 3 and 4.
