The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia occupies two adjacent heritage buildings across from the Province House. Between them is Ondaatje Court. This plaza serves as the entrance to AGNS. Since the museum was founded in 1908, the collection has swelled to over 18,000 pieces. This makes it the largest art museum in Atlantic Canada. Most of the works are by artists from the province and across Canada yet some international names are featured. Perhaps most interesting is the art by Maud Lewis. She was a popular 20th century folk artist from Nova Scotia. Her tiny house is also exhibited.
