Doors Open Pittsburgh
This coming weekend (October 7th and 8th), the city is providing you the opportunity to get a look inside some of the most historic and iconic buildings in Pittsburgh. With over 60 buildings opening their doors to “tourists” in Downtown Pittsburgh, the Northside, and the Strip District you will have the chance to get inside buildings you’ve only walked past. Admire the architecture of long-standing buildings and marvel at the newly-renovated ones from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.!
Put Nova Place on your map! Stop over to get a look inside the main concourse as well as Alloy 26, Pittsburgh’s largest co-working space! 15-minute guided tours will be available throughout the day and feel free to hang out on the lawn and plaza for a break between buildings! The best part: Take the elevator to the 9th floor of Nova Tower Two for one of the most incredible views of Pittsburgh.
Don’t forget to purchase tickets to this event online! Tickets are available to purchase for each day individually or you can buy a 2-day pass! Make it a family fun day and bring your kids! All children under the age of 18 receive tickets for free!
