Doors Open Saskatoon is part of an international tradition that began in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1990. The concept is a simple one: buildings of architectural and historical significance, many of which are not normally open to the public, open their doors to visitors for a day. Many provide guided tours, special exhibits, displays or performances. Doors Open Saskatoon was initially presented in 2005 and is happening for the 10th time this year.
