MISSION

DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh celebrates Pittsburgh’s unique architecture and heritage by providing visual storytelling and education INSIDE iconic and newly-designed buildings.

We curate an appreciation for Pittsburgh’s unique heritage, variant architectural assets, and the need for continued preservation.

We do this with the help of hundreds of DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh volunteers who welcome Pittsburghers — and anyone visiting our city — to come inside the iconic and newly-designed buildings.  Hear the stories these buildings tell us about our past, present, and future, during an annual event in October.

Beginning in 2020, we now offer monthly “Specialty Tours.”  These tours are thematic and fully-guided.  We open the doors to exciting spaces across city neighborhoods to continue the story of “communities” that have made, and continue to make, Pittsburgh the ever-evolving city it is!
