NEAR NORTH SIDE — More than a dozen architecturally significant buildings on the Near North Side will open their doors to visitors for this weekend’s Open House Chicago.

Organized by the Chicago Architecture Center, Open House puts more than 170 sites in more than 20 neighborhoods on display. The event runs Saturday and Sunday, and entry is free unless otherwise noted.

CAC’s Angela Esposito details some Open House Chicago highlights:

The Gold Coast, Old Town, River North and Streeterville neighborhoods offerings range from the the Glunz Tavern and the House of Glunz Wine & Spirits Shop in Old Town to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier.
