This is the largest art museum in Atlantic Canada and although it has an impressive collection of traditional and contemporary art (with changing exhibitions), what makes it really special is the Maude Lewis house and the collection of her works. Lewis was a Nova Scotian folk artist who lived with profound disabilities but produced whimsical and much-loved folk art. When she died in 1970, a society was formed to save her painted house, which ended up being moved in its entirety to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, where you can see it today. There is also a lovely gift shop within the gallery.
