Ever wandered around downtown Denver and thought, "I wonder what that building looks like on the inside!" This weekend, you'll be given the chance to snoop around some of your favorite Denver classics as well as newer - and beautifully remodeled! - spaces.
This is the 11th year of Doors Open Denver, a premier showcasing event presented by the Denver Architectural Foundation. This Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, Denver buildings will open their doors to the public for exclusive and rare viewing opportunities, exposing the inside of Denver’s unique urban fabric. Free tours will be offered to the open sites, as well as insider tours for a nominal fee.
This year’s event highlights Denver classics, then and now. Union Station will act as headquarters for this citywide event; stops along the way include Bindery on Blake (host to this spring's recent Denver Flea), downtown's Boettcher Concert Hall, as well as the famous Paramount Theater. These are only a few of the free stops along this year's tour - there will be over 50 sites open to the public!
Doors Open Denver's mission is to tell the story of Denver: where it is, where it’s been, and where it’s going. Tour your favorite buildings to learn about the rich, diverse history of the city, experience the places where its entrepreneurial spirit and love for play meet and live, and explore what’s on the horizon in design, architecture, and urban planning.
