Birthday Parties

Book now for the Best Birthday Party ever! The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia offers specially designed birthday parties with hands-on art activities and an interactive child-friendly Gallery tour. These birthday parties are great for kids as young as 4 years old.

Choose two great art-making activities suitable for any age.

These activities include:





Following an introduction about "What's an Art Gallery", each party will begin with a tour of an exhibition in the Gallery that relates to the chosen art-making theme, and will be dependent on current exhibitions on display.  After the tour, party go-ers return to the studio to create their hands-on art projects. The remainder of time is allotted to food and gifts.

The length of a party is 2 hours. (Please note that the Gallery opens at 10:00 am on Saturdays and 12:00 pm on Sundays).

Fee is $150 + HST for up to 12 children and includes admission, guided tour, two facilitated art activities, use of facilities including studio space and access to fridge and freezer.

Fee is $ 250 + HST for 13 - 20 children and includes the above with two staff facilitators.

Please bring with you: food, drink, utensils or decorations.

Thinking of bringing candles? Due to the sensitivity of our sprinkler systems in the Gallery, we strongly recommend using a single number candle.
