“We love #DoorsOpenWinnipeg because we love exploring our city and visiting historical places.
This year, we joined a walking tour with amazing Matthew Komus (we have read both of his books!), and even the weather wasn’t cooperating, but his stories kept us amazed throughout the tour!

This weekend was all packed up with beautiful historical (and some haunted) places.
We’ve been in Legislative Building, Dalnavert House, Fort Garry Horse Museum, and Seven Oaks House (didn’t spot any ghosts though).

Huge shoutout to all volunteers who made those visits unforgettable!
Can’t wait to visit more places next year!”

Congratulations to the winners of the Scavenger Hunt!
