Langley Centennial Museum  














All Township recreation centres, arenas, pools, and the Langley Centennial Museum are closed to curb the spread of COVID-19.  Effective March 17 Spring break day camps and childcare are also canceled. We continue to take direction from health authorities on further closures and cancellations.


The Langley Centennial Museum’s exhibition areas are divided into two main galleries: the History Gallery and the Temporary Exhibition Gallery. 

Langley is one of the oldest municipalities in the province. In our History Gallery you can discover our collection of First People's woodcarvings, tools, stone sculptures, and basketry. Learn how early Asian and European pioneers adjusted to their new land. Visit the recreated Michaud parlour and the Noel Booth Store to see what life was like for those that came to call Langley home.

Our Temporary Exhibition Gallery displays art, history, or science with a local, regional, national, or international focus. The exhibits here change several times a year. You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next!
