Virtual Tour

Since 1908, the Gallery has been a gateway for the visual arts in Atlantic Canada. During this time of closure, we continue to welcome you into the Gallery through virtual tours of our permanent exhibitions and those spaces featuring work from our Permanent Collection.

This virtual tour is presented by BMO as an extension of the BMO Free Access program. Please enjoy the works on view as you navigate the gallery at your leisure through your various devices.

Maud Lewis Gallery:

In 1984, the Maud Lewis Painted House was sold to the Province of Nova Scotia and turned over to the care of Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

In 1996, with funds from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage and from private individuals, the processes of conservation and restoration began. The final, fully restored house is on permanent display in Halifax at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
