This Saturday, Sept. 17, is Open Doors South Milwaukee, a public celebration of the city’s art, architecture, culture, history, businesses, organizations, and people that make it special.
The free family event, which offers behind-the-scenes tours of buildings throughout the city, is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Times for some stops vary.) More than 20 locations are open, including historical points of interest, churches, schools, businesses, city facilities, and other organizations. The Bucyrus Museum will also be offering half-priced ($5) admission.
More details on the Open Doors event here, including a list of participating locations. Check back frequently, as and hours may change slightly this week.
Also, look for more information on a special incentive, as those who visit 12 or more stops can claim a free 125th anniversary commemorative coin. To get one, turn in a completed map – available online prior to the event or at each stop – and return it to the South Milwaukee Fire Department by 3:15 p.m. on Sept. 17.
