Exhibitions Overview

The Langley Centennial Museum’s exhibition areas are divided into two main galleries: the History Gallery and the Temporary Exhibitions Gallery.  The displays in the History Gallery reflect Langley’s distinction as one of the oldest municipalities in the province.  Here 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 Exhibitions Gallery displays temporary exhibitions of art, history, or science with a local, regional, national, or international focus.  You might find Canadian art, quilts, fossils, or photography.  The exhibits change several times a year.  You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next!  Click here to see what is on now.

Treasures From Our Collection

This thematic display of treasures changes seasonally and allows the museum to exhibit some of the artifacts from the museum’s permanent collection that visitors don’t often get to see.  Past displays have included:
  • Hats
  • Remembrance Day
  • Lighting
  • Photography
  • The British Empire
  • Travel and Collecting

You will be surprised by what you see and by what may be coming next.

The Trinity Western University 2015 Graduate Art Exhibition



The Trinity Western University 2015 Graduate Art Exhibition

Transpose suggests a shift in the ways we think about the world. We abandon our underlying assumptions, taking up instead an attitude of curiosity and speculation. We are exploring a new way of looking at our fears, our emotions, and our memories. Relying on the creation of new objects in the form of drawings, paintings, and photographs, we strive to represent the intangible psychological and emotional quotients of our human nature. These pieces are a collection of narratives and inquiries. We’ve taken our experiences and observations, and transposed them into material form. These works address our transitory state in a deeply personal and vulnerable way. After years of trial and error, self-doubt and self-discovery, we’ve come to a shift. A shift in perspective and a shift in direction.

The Langley Centennial Museum is pleased to present Transpose, the Trinity Western University Graduate Art Exhibition. TWU has partnered with the museum for seven consecutive years to present new contemporary art exhibits, while gaining knowledge in working with a curator and a public gallery. This year, for the first time, graduating artists Katelyn Anderson, Chantal New, Meredith Radwanski, and Marissa Wagner with showcase their works beside solo shows from honours student artists Diana Hiebert and Olivia de Fleuriot. Hiebert’s show seeks to explore the relationship between self and her changing ideals, while de Fleuriot’s works explore the space between people located in the urban environment using paint on photographs.

An opening reception will be held at the museum on Tuesday, March 31, from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. All are welcome. Additionally, you’re invited to join all of the student artists as they talk about their artistic experience of moving beyond skill development to finding their voice, and provide art demonstrations on Wednesday, April 1 from 4:00 – 5:30pm. This free event promises to be an interesting event for other artists and the general public! To register, please contact the Langley Centennial Museum.
