Doors Open Milwaukee is organized by Historic Milwaukee, Inc., a non-profit whose mission is dedicated to increasing awareness of Milwaukee’s history and architecture through educational programming.

The fourth weekend of every September 100+ buildings open their doors for Doors Open Milwaukee, a city-wide celebration of history, architecture, and neighborhoods. The event attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. Since the event began in 2011, demand from buildings to participate has increased rapidly and Historic Milwaukee is excited to work with the community to showcase their buildings to residents and visitors.

If you’d like your building to be part of Doors Open Milwaukee, please review the building criteria outlined below and submit a Building Consideration Form by March 31, 2023.
