DENVER (CBS4) – The McNichols Building is just one of more than 65 venues featured in this year’s “Doors Open Denver” event, which happens next weekend.

The goal is to get people inside buildings they may walk past every day or not even notice.

“You’re invited to walk into any building that’s participating, and there’s a wide range,” said Annie Levinsky, Director of Historic Denver. “You’ll see great public lobbies, sometimes you’ll see office spaces. Some of the buildings are churches and you can see their sanctuaries, stained-glass windows, all sorts of inside details.”

Some of the landmarks in this year’s event include the governor’s residence, the Chamberlain Observatory, Denver Fire House No. 9 and the Mayan Theatre.

Doors Open Denver is a free 2-day event April 13 & 14 celebrating architecture and design. The 2013 theme is “Denver the City Beautiful – Then & Now.” Learn more at the Denver Architectural Foundation’s website.
