The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is proud to offer educational tours during the school year to enrich the learning of students and teachers.
In April, 2012 the Gallery announced the Canaccord Free Access School Program. Effective immediately all Nova Scotia students coming to the Gallery on school visits are able to visit at no cost.
