Doors Open is a unique opportunity for the citizens of  Newfoundland and Labrador to celebrate our built heritage.


Buildings that are normally closed to the public or charge an entrance fee welcome visitors to look around for free. 

 Update on Doors Open 2020


Each year during the fall, the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust organizes a Doors Open event. This one day event sees museums, historic sites, churches, and other buildings open their doors to the public, free of charge, so that we can all appreciate the cultural and architectural beauty of our built heritage.

Due to COVID-19, Doors Open 2020 will not proceed.  Out of concern for our volunteers and visitors, the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust cannot encourage large groups to gather and visit the sites as we have done in the past.

We encourage the public to continue to appreciate the province's built heritage at their own leisure while following all required precautions, such as social distancing and mask wearing.  Please explore the websites below for more information on built heritage sites that may be open to visitors during Fall 2020 (cost, hours, COVID-19 restrictions, etc.).

We hope to see Doors Open return in 2021!
