Melburnians will be able to set foot in some of the city’s most important cultural and historical spaces for the first time this weekend.

The new Melbourne Holocaust Museum building and freshly finished parts of Footscray’s Heavenly Queen Temple will be open to the public for the first time as Open House Melbourne returns in its physical form with one of its largest programs ever.

The place and design event features 83 new and 132 returning venues today and tomorrow.

Open House Melbourne chief executive Fleur Watson said this year’s ‘Built/Unbuilt’ theme’s feature work ‘Taking Hold of the Clouds’ would transform the city into a gallery.

“It sees two major international works and five, local commissioned artworks take over seven unique venues across the Melbourne CBD and into the suburbs,” she said.

“This is a first for Open House Melbourne and we are very excited.”

Lord mayor Sally Capp said the City of Melbourne was “overjoyed” to welcome back the free event’s physical form.

“The City of Melbourne will feature prominently in Open House 2022, with iconic buildings like the Melbourne Town Hall open for tours, and with our in-house design team offering free walking tours of the city,” she said.

“Events like this are what cement Melbourne’s reputation as a cultural capital, and we know that there will be significant flow-on benefits for city traders over the Open House weekend.”
