Doors Open Denver 2021 Tour testimonials:
"I really loved being able to participate in DOD virtually this year. I felt like I learned a lot about my hometown and it got me excited about visiting places like DIA and taking some more time there to appreciate all the wonderful art pieces they have on display. And the speakers you had for the NCAR tour were excellent. I'm taking a hike near NCAR this Saturday and am excited to check out the building in person for the first time. Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing what you come out with next year!"
"Thanks for letting me see neat stuff!"
"I'm really enjoying my membership. I hope to do some volunteer work with DAF in the future."
"I had so much fun watching the tours. Please keep doing the virtual ones every year."
"Being able to sign up for a tour early as a member is a real advantage."
"Doors Open Denver has given me an opportunity to learn about well-known historical structures and homes that are not otherwise accessible to the public. This is a valuable public service for anyone interested in Denver's history and architecture."
