Doors Open Toronto 2024 coming May 25 and 26

Exploring things for free and seeing places that are typically not open to the public, this is the premise for the annual Doors Open Toronto which "unlocks the city’s hidden histories on May 25 and 26." The weekend adventure includes over 150 participating sites, 17 free guided tours (register in advance), themed talks and the occasional workshops and fun activities. City Hall will also be a hub for public programming suitable for families.

Some of the more interesting visits is to the Bay Lower Subway Station, the El Mocambo, Elgin & Winer Garden Theatres, Redpath Sugar, Fort York National Historic Site, R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant and the City notes that  "Toronto City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square will once again be a hub for family-friendly programming that invites the public to go behind the scenes at this important civic site. Visitors can see the Mayor’s Office, find out what happens inside Council Chamber, explore the Hall of Memory and enjoy remarkable views from the 27th floor Observation Deck. The Red Chair Sessions, a portraiture series by Toronto Photo Laureate Nadya Kwandibens, will also be on display."

Some of the guided neighbourhood tours include; The Women of Park Lawn Cemetery, Hidden Queer Histories of Hanlan's Point, Restoring the Canada Malting Silos, Welcome to the Rouge! and Downsview’s Aviation Legacy.
