From the Bradley Museum to council chambers at City Hall to the Hindu Heritage Centre, doors across Mississauga are wide open today, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

History buffs, we’ve got you.  Go to 2007 Lakeshore Rd. W. (Stonebrook presentation centre), near Southdown Rd. On display: 3D reproductions of the chalk carvings of regimental badges and messages to family, created in caves during the First World War in 1917 at Souterraine Impressions from Vimy Ridge. This is the only GTA location scheduled for this cross-Canada art exhibition.

“Doors Open allows you to explore the city like a tourist,” said the city’s acting director of culture division Paul Damasco. “You can discover and appreciate some of Mississauga’s most significant architectural achievements.”

Sport heritage is this year’s theme, following the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games in Mississauga. Four destinations – the canoe club, the sports hall of fame, the Ontario Centre for Classical Sports, and Vic Johnston community centre are featured.

The program is in its 12th year.
