Open House Adelaide is part of a global network of Open House regions worldwide. The concept of opening buildings up to the public started in London almost 20 years ago. The Open House model invites everyone to experience and explore the value of buildings in their environment. This successful concept has been extended to other cities around the world, and you can now find Open House in Adelaide, Barcelona, Brisbane, Chicago, Dublin, Galway, Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia, Helsinki, Jerusalem, Limerick, Lisbon, London, Melbourne, New York, Perth, Rome, Slovenia, Tel Aviv, and Thessaloniki.

Adelaide joined the Open House network in 2012, and hosted their first one during South Australia’s About Time History Festival last year. This proved incredibly popular, and it’s now it back with even more buildings around Adelaide opening their doors to the public.

Saturday 4th May and Sunday 5th May are the days these buildings scheduled to be open. Some 1 day only, others both. You can find full details of each eventĀ  on the www.openhouseadelaide.com.au website.
