About those doors in Downtown

Several free standing doors have popped up around Milwaukee's greater Downtown. I drove by one on Water Street at about Pleasant Street today, and stopped to do a bit of research.

The doors have a logo and QR code. Do a search for Doors Open Milwaukee or scan the QR code and you'll find out that the they're linked to Historic Milwaukee, Inc. and its "Doors Open Milwaukee (DOM)" program.

Doors Open Milwaukee, Sept. 24-25, will give you access to nearly 100 buildings in Downtown Milwaukee. It's a cool program that gives you the ability to see private offices, boardrooms and other spaces that are seldom open to the general public. Similar events have been done in many other cities.

Historic Milwaukee's website explains it like this, "From belfries to boardrooms, judicial chambers to prop shops, green roofs to private museums, DOM will be like getting a back-stage pass to buildings' restricted areas that visitors never see. Churches, museums, theaters, clubs, office buildings, markets, shops, historic homes, cultural centers, architectural firms – any site of historic, cultural or architectural interest."

So, there you have it. Now you know what those doors are all about and you have a new event to add to your calendar.

I saw this in a Milwaukee events calendar and it immediately drew my attention. I think it'll be really neat!
