“We had an absolute blast at Doors Open Winnipeg! It was a fantastic opportunity for our family to embark on a thrilling adventure, uncovering the hidden gems and fascinating stories behind the city’s architectural wonders.
From historic landmarks to modern marvels, we immersed ourselves in a world of captivating designs and rich history. [Our child] was in awe as we stepped into beautifully restored heritage buildings, admiring their intricate craftsmanship.
We love #doorsopenwinnipeg because it’s a neat way to see and learn the history of our buildings and city! We got to see the Firefighters Museum, the Silvester and Wilson building, Fleet Galleries, the Mariaggi hotel, Costume museum of Canada and the last video is of [our child] running the track at the newly renovated downtown YMCA. We go every year but this year is extra special because [our child] is at an age to appreciate it all. Note the camera in her hands. She took pictures too.
