Owners of the Board of Trade's building will unlock the heavy doors as part of the weekend's architectural "Open House Chicago 2013."

Representatives from GlenStar Properties and USAA Real Estate Company -- the board building's new owners -- will be there to welcome the public. The vault is no longer used by the Board of Trade.

The open house Saturday and Sunday is the third annual event by the Chicago Architecture Foundation and is free to the public.
