Explore Nova Scotia with CMA 2016 National Conference Study Tours

In less than one month, museum and gallery professionals are gathering at the Canadian Museums Association's National Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The five-day conference from April 11-15, 2016 will allow national and international delegates to work together to improve museum policy, practice, and sustainability.

From April 12-14, attendees will be able to take part in workshops and educational sessions and can enjoy several keynote addresses and an awards ceremony. The first and last day of the conference, delegates are invited to participate in a day trip along the maritime coast to visit the town of Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.

For those who want to see as much of Nova Scotia as possible, there are two additional options: 

 Two-day pre-conference tour of the Annapolis Valley and Southern Coast

Three-day post-conference tour of Cape Breton

All three study tours come at an additional cost that includes travel, guided site tours, and some meals.

The study tours allow attendees to see the example set by local Nova Scotian institutions, and may provide inspiration for working solutions that can be applied at home.
