We're looking at possible record numbers of attendance but more on that next week.

While I'm thinking of it, Doors Open Winnipeg next year will be on May 28 & 29, 2016. 
Keep an eye out on the website and blog for more information in the new year.

...then you might also enjoy some of Winnipeg's other great tours! We've added a "Historical Tours" page to the blog, which lists a large number of the historical tours available in Winnipeg throughout the year. The majority of tours listed do cost money, but it should help hold you over until Doors Open Winnipeg 2016. Check back regularly for updates and let us know if we've missed anything!
