Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (AGNS) is a public provincial art museum based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The art museum's primary building complex is located in downtown Halifax, and takes up approximately 6,200 square metres (67,000 sq ft) of space. The museum complex is made up of the former Dominion building, and two floors of the adjacent Provincial building. In addition to its main museum complex in Halifax, the museum also operates a satellite branch in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
The museum was established in 1908 as the Nova Scotia Museum of Fine Arts, and was later renamed the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in 1975. The museum moved into the Dominion building in 1988, and expanded the museum complex in 1998. In 2006, the museum opened a satellite branch in Yarmouth.
