Houses From Within, Jerusalem is an annual event taking place each Autumn in which, for one weekend, over 100 buildings across Jerusalem open their doors to the public. The participating buildings range from public institutions such as government buildings, cultural venues, and museums, to private homes and offices from every architectural period and style conceivable. At some venues, guided tours take place, whilst in others the doors are literally opened for the public to explore. In 2017, Houses From Within, Jerusalem (known in Hebrew as Batim Jerusalem) will be on the weekend of October 26-28.
