The man that owns this place is very nice, talkative and an excellent artist. Lots of places to park and you walk up into the main gallery. A must see if you're in the area.

I believe there will be bus transportation from your ship otherwise you will have to go by car. There is no regular bus route yet. It is about 24 miles outside of Halifax, your cruise would have sailed quite close to it... More
