On September 21st and 22nd, 2013,  Historic Milwaukee, Inc. will host its third annual Doors Open Milwaukee at over 100 locations across the city. Opening their doors to visitors, free of charge, will be some of Milwaukee's most historic and monumental structures. Some of last year's highlighted locations include:

-Iron Block Building
-Milwaukee Art Museum
-Milwaukee County Courthouse
-North Point Water Tower
-Pabst Mansion

...and many more!
Visitors to the event have two options for taking advantage of Doors Open Milwaukee. They can design their own agenda of buildings to visit from the list at any time during the 10 AM - 5 PM open doors timespan, or join some of the in-depth, ticketed tours offered at many of the locations.
Furthermore, Historic Milwaukee, Inc. offers the opportunity for community members to volunteer at the event and work a variety of posts throughout the city.
As an architecture student, Doors Open Milwaukee offers the opportunity to get an inside look at some amazing structures, but as a citizen of Milwaukee, the event offers an opportunity to learn about Milwaukee's rich history through some of the city's most iconic buildings. With over 100 buildings open to the public, there is certain to be something for everyone.
