Doors Open Milwaukee, Historic Milwaukee’s most ambitious project, opens the doors to over 150 of Milwaukee's most interesting and historic buildings free-of-charge to the public. These churches, theaters, museums, and clubs hold hidden treasures and special stories that visitors can explore this weekend.
Participants can design their own itinerary, often with guided tours, no tickets necessary, or join one or more in-depth tours that are ticketed.
