Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Moving to Halifax Waterfront

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will move to a new, modern space on Halifax’s waterfront. The move will enhance the province’s position as a leader in the visual arts, inviting the world to celebrate our culture.

The 142,000 square foot facility will feature large public spaces for Nova Scotians to enjoy and additional space to better showcase the dynamic provincial art collection, much of which has been in storage for many years.
