CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2023 WINNER, JENNIE!
“We had an absolute blast at Doors Open Winnipeg! It was a fantastic opportunity for our family to embark on a thrilling adventure, uncovering the hidden gems and fascinating stories behind the city’s architectural wonders.
From historic landmarks to modern marvels, we immersed ourselves in a world of captivating designs and rich history. Lia was in awe as we stepped into beautifully restored heritage buildings, admiring their intricate craftsmanship.
We love #doorsopenwinnipeg because it’s a neat way to see and learn the history of our buildings and city! We got to see the Firefighters Museum, the Silvester and Wilson building, Fleet Galleries, the Mariaggi hotel, Costume museum of Canada and the last video is of [our child] running the track at the newly renovated downtown YMCA. We go every year but this year is extra special because [our child] is at an age to appreciate it all. Note the camera in her hands. She took pictures too.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2022 WINNER, TALA!
I love #DoorsOpenWinnipeg because it allowed me to visit important historic landmark buildings in the city, experience local events, & take part in helping preserve the city’s heritage.
As a newcomer in this city, it’s very important for me to learn about the history of the land I walk on. Through this event, my husband and I experienced entering a prison cell, visiting a French university, exploring the facility where every Canadian coin is produced, watching an opera, an acrobatics show, & a musical film, entering the backstage of a theater, visiting old houses & churches, and learning about tidbits of facts & interesting local tales in Winnipeg and the province of Manitoba. It’s such a diverse experience which reflects the colorful culture and history of the city. I deeply appreciate the enthusiasm and warmth of everyone involved in this event.
Thanks for the amazing film, Stand!, and Heritage Winnipeg for this wonderful event. We’ll keep supporting you in the years to come. ❤️

I love #DoorsOpenWinnipeg because we get to learn not only facts, but stories about the buildings and land we grew up on. Learning how people used to live and their connections with each other.
As an added bonus I get to scare the 💩 out of @feniuk by making him come into a haunted jail and take a selfie in an old jail cell while his skin is literally about to crawl off his body😂
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2019 WINNER, KAITLIN!
Our first year experiencing this, and now…. I love #DOORSOPENWINNIPEG because … I am obsessed with old buildings and their architecture! I have always wanted to wander around Winnipeg’s heritage buildings.. just found out a few months ago there is one day a year you can actually do it! Today we saw Vaughan Street Jail, the Legislative building, Government house, the Law Courts and the newly restored Fortune block.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 WINNER, SCOTT!
“I love #doorsopenwinnipeg because it allowed me to explore the top row of @theburtwpg! I had to hold on for my life, but it was totally worth it. I love this building and getting the freedom to roam around was so much fun. Thx @HeritageWPG for making my first doorsopen awesome!”
