Over 200 buildings and events at Open House Melbourne

Building sneak peeks, immersive tours, workshops, exhibitions, 2000 ping pong balls and more at this year's event.

Some of Melbourne’s most iconic and intriguing venues will open their doors on the weekend of 29-30 July, with the 2023 Open House program offering sneak peeks of places not ordinarily accessible to the public.

Highlights include: ‘Making Home’, a talk and tour series exploring the best of Victoria’s social and affordable housing, and incorporating a look at the role of developers in social housing; a preview of the soon-to-be-open Holocaust Museum; a film celebrating the museum’s architect, the multi award-winning Kerstin Thompson; and 16 modern and historical Melbourne homes open for tours.
