Doors Open Pittsburgh Gives an Inside Look at Historic Landmarks

The David L. Lawrence Convention Center located by Pittsburgh's Allegheny River.

Doors Open Pittsburgh continues its tradition of giving tours of buildings that dot the region. They’re inviting guests to be ‘nebby’, a Pittsburghese term for nosey, with a VIP pass explore the iconic insides of towers and mansions. The annual one day event is tomorrow October 3, 2020. At $12 for general admission, it’s a perfect excuse to get out of the house.

Those with guides can expect an abbreviated history of 10-15 minutes upon their visit.
