Open House Melbourne Weekend 28 + 29 July 2018

Over 220 buildings around Melbourne will open their doors on 28 + 29 July 2018. Open House Melbourne will also take over the whole month of July with a series of talks, events, tours, screenings, performances and more.

The 2018 program is now live. Explore the buildings below, add them to your itinerary, and get ready for 2018!

Pre-booked buildings

Some buildings have pre-booked tours, due to their limited capacity, and require a small $5 booking fee to reserve your place. First release bookings open on Friday 13 July at 8:30am with the second release on Friday 20th July at 8:30am. Check each building page for the direct Universe ticketing link or find the full list of pre-booked buildings here: universe.com/users/open-house-melbourne

PRINT PROGRAM

With over 330 pages, the 2018 Open House Melbourne Program is our biggest yet. It’s once again been designed by the talented team at Cornwell, with contributions from literally hundreds of people. Each year’s program represents a moment in time, and will remain a keepsake for many years to come.

You can pre-order your program today from Readings for $24.95
