The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will resume welcoming visitors through its doors this week.

The gallery reopens on Thursday, July 16 with new hours and safety measures.

It is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.

BMO Free Access Thursday Nights go from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

On Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon, access is limited to seniors and higher-risk individuals, and it's members-only from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

Frontline workers with identification get free admission until September 1.

Guests will enter the building through the courtyard between Hollis Street and Bedford Row and there is a set capacity, along with one-way flow to help visitors maintain a safe physical distance.

Gallery staff will be wearing masks and visitors are encouraged to do the same.

As always, large handbags, backpacks, umbrellas and oversized personal items are not allowed in the exhibition spaces. The coat room and lockers can be used, but those heading to the gallery are asked to bring as little as possible.

Guided tours and other programming are currently on hold, as are facility rentals.

More information can be found on the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia website.
