You will need to present your event ticket to a DOP volunteer at EACH building for entry. Do not leave your ticket at any building(s) visited because you will need your ticket for entry to any other building(s) you visit during the event.
All participating buildings for 2019 are on this website. You will be able to sort by neighborhood, category, and access times for each building on the BUILDING LIST page. Simply make a list of buildings that interest you most and the team of DOP volunteers will be on-hand at each building to welcome you. Advanced reservations to visit any building are not required.
We suggest that you sort by neighborhood and look for buildings that are clustered together to save time. Also, you can create YOUR MOBILE ITINERARY to help you create an efficient plan for your adventure!
Yes, a downloadable/printable version of the 2019 Event Guide will be posted on this website on September 25th. Also, the 2019 Event Guide will be available as an insert in the City Paper (September 25th city-only distributions), and at the event itself while supplies last.
No, not all buildings will be open 10am-4pm each day of the DOP event. Please refer to the individual listings on the BUILDING LIST page for specific location hours, and any last-minute changes.
A typical building visit will take 10-15 minutes. Plan to visit a maximum of 8-10 buildings per day to avoid having to rush. You can sort the BUILDING LIST by the category "Long Lines - Possible Waits".
Volunteers and Sponsors have been provided a Priority Pass for their contribution to DOP 2019.
Please refer to individual building descriptions on the BUILDING LIST page. Note, some buildings may offer lobby-only access, guided tours, special lectures or exhibits. Confirm the length and time of any tours so you can schedule them into your day.
Yes! The Insider Tours are being made available again in 2019. These tours provide a thematic tour experience led by an expert, and are a separate experience from the DOP event and therefore require a separate ticket. Please refer the Insider Tours page for individual Insider Tour descriptions and to purchase tickets.
Some buildings will have photography and recording restrictions. Please refer to the individual building descriptions on the BUILDING LIST page before visiting.
In most cases restrooms are available. Please refer to the individual building descriptions on the BUILDING LIST page before visiting.
Most buildings are handicap accessible, but may require a separate entrance than the primary “event” address for the building. Please refer to the individual building descriptions on the BUILDING LIST page before visiting.
DOP will send all event ticket holders an online survey after the event.
