Government House is proud to participate in the first ever Doors Open Halifax on June 8 & 9 2013.

Doors Open is an exciting initiative that takes place annually in cities around the world.  Buildings of architectural, historic, cultural and social significance open their doors to the public for special programming and tours.  Visitors are invited to properties that are not usually open to the public, or normally charge an entrance fee. 

The Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, Brigadier-General JJ Grant, would like to invite the public to experience the history and beauty of  Government House, North America's oldest vice-regal residence.  In the spirit of Doors Open,  the Royal Suite on the second floor.will be open to the public for the first time since the renovations were completed in 2009.

Date: Saturday June 8 & Sunday June 9

Time: 10am - 4pm

Free of charge
