Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling in manholes. Reward the most overworked sense with today's Groupon to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, located downtown. Choose between two options:

  • For $15, you get a family day pass for up to two adults and three children (a $30 value).
  • For $5, you get an individual day pass (up to a $12 value).

Beating in the heart of downtown Halifax, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia gathers works from Nova Scotian and other Canadian artists in its nearly 90,000 square feet of soaring art-soaked space. From an Inuit artist's simple Japanese-style print of two polar bears—the same species he later died hunting—to a local female artist's striking 1920 oil portrait of a grave French soldier, the 15,000 works in the permanent collection weave together a nuanced portrait of the region's cultural life. Rotating national and international exhibitions and a tchotchke-stocked museum shop round out the museum's ocular opulence.

Admission for children ages 6 to 17 is always $5, and children ages 5 and younger always enter for free.
