Doors Open Toronto 2016 this weekend

This year there are over 130 buildings participating in the community access event. The 17th annual celebration of architecture, history, culture and socially significant buildings is presented by Great Gulf from May 28th to the 29th.
You can take part in walking tours and talks while exploring the sites for free, although parking is usually not included, while getting into some places that are normally off limits for the public. While many of the locations are open both Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, some locations are open on only one of the days, or with different hours, so check before you go.
"Since its inception in 2000, Doors Open Toronto has attracted more than two-million visits to over 700 unique locations across the city. It is Canada's largest Doors Open event and one of the three largest Doors Open events in the world. Doors Open Toronto is dedicated to celebrating built heritage, architecture and design. It is presented by Great Gulf and produced by the City of Toronto in partnership with the community."
Places to visit include the Aga Khan Museum, Billy Bishop Toronto Island Airport, City and Omni - Rogers television studios, Design Exchange, Gangway's open Toronto Harbourfront, OCAD U, Redpath Sugar Factory and the RC Harris Water Treatment Plant.
