If you are planning to visit Halifax and have no idea what to do, here is a list that will definitely help you.
Go skating at the Emera Oval
If you are looking for a more physical activity, head over to the Halifax Common and enjoy outdoor skating at the Emera Oval! The Emera Oval offers FREE public skating throughout the day, every day. It is the largest outdoor artificially refrigerated ice surface in Atlantic Canada. The ice surface can accommodate up to 1500 skaters at a time. Children 12 years of age and younger must wear helmets. Renting skates and helmets is possible with a valid ID from the government.
Check out a new exhibit
Take a visit to an art gallery or museum on a stormy winter day. Visit the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to see the most recent Maud Lewis show, which includes 130 pieces of the adored and celebrated folk artist, some of which have never been on display before.
Maud Lewis (1903–1970), one of Canada’s most popular folk painters, became well-known during her lifetime for her charming and vivid depictions of rural Nova Scotia. The achievement of Lewis is highlighted in this retrospective show, which closely examines the serial repetition of images and patterns she used throughout her career. Lewis is one of Canada’s most formally innovative folk musicians thanks to her mastery of color, limitless compositional diversity, and lively vernacular manner.
If you enjoy science, don’t miss Body Worlds Vital, an exhibition that opens on January 27 at the Museum of Natural History and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about our anatomy, our health, and what it means to be a person.
