DOD will feature one tour a day, four days a week (Monday through Thursday) for three consecutive weeks. Each tour will allow time for a question-and-answer period. Tours cost $7 for members and $9 for nonmembers. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit DAF, a nonprofit organization.
“While Doors Open Denver will look different than it has in past years, we are thrilled to offer people a unique opportunity to experience Denver architecture in a safe, socially-distanced way,” said Pauline Herrera, DAF executive director.
“New to DOD this year are sites such as the Freyer-Newman Center at Denver Botanic Gardens, Lumina, The Link, Mansions of the Quality Hill Neighborhood and the Boiler House. Insider Tour expert guides will weave their expertise and knowledge throughout the intimate experience of remote tours through some of Denver’s architectural gems.”
