May 24, 2016 - For the second year in a row, CAMH joins the Doors Open Toronto roster. This city-wide celebration invites the public to explore buildings of architectural, cultural, historical and/or social significance, and attendees are encouraged to come explore CAMH’s 1001 Queen Street West site.
Visiting buildings both old and new, guided tours will provide insight into the development of care for mental illness and addiction that has taken place on this site over the last 165 years, and a look at what’s to come as part of the next phase of CAMH’s Redevelopment Project.
Thirty-minute tours will occur each hour beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 28 only. The last tour of the day is at 4:30 p.m. To register for a tour, stop by the Doors Open Toronto tent on the CAMH lawn at the southeast corner of Lower Ossington and Queen Street West any time after 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 28.
