We are pleased to open Holiday Village, a new annual tradition. The centerpiece of this new exhibit is the renowned Mills Brothers classic holiday window display. Familiar to generations of Nova Scotians, this beautiful Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs display now has a permanent home at the Nova Scotia Museum and will make its debut this year.
