Nova Scotia's provincial government runs this center, set very near the VIA Rail station, at the west end of the waterfront. The idea: to encourage and develop crafts- and design-based industries across the province. The Mary E. Black Gallery features constantly changing exhibits of the best that Nova Scotia craftspeople are producing in silver, pewter, ceramic pottery, precious jewelry, fabric, needlepoint—even whalebone. Depending on your interest, you could spend up to an hour here.
