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.

Fibre Arts A-Z



 

Let the alphabet be your guide to explore the fibre arts!  From Angora and Alpaca, blankets and cat hair, to yarn and-wait for it-zombies!- the Langley Weavers' & Spinners' Guild has used their craft to explore all of the letters of the alphabet in their newest exhibit, Fibre Arts A-Z. 

Whether animal, plant, mineral or synthetic, fibre has been a fundamental part of daily human activity for thousands of years.  With the prolific availability of cheap clothing today, fibre is easy to take for granted.  The Langley Weavers' & Spinners' Guild will explore various elements of fibre arts including spinning, weaving, dyeing, felting and knitting.  This tactile exhibit is full of fibrous texture and will entice and inspire people to discover their own passion for fibre arts.  The exhibit also shines a spotlight on the increasing awareness about the environmental harm and abuse of workers present in the textile industry, which demands constant change. 

The artists of the Weavers' & Spinners' Guild will also be leading demonstrations as they work on their 100 km Coat - a coat made entirely of resources and talent available within our region.  Visit Thursdays and Saturdays from 1:00 - 3:00pm to watch and ask questions. 

The exhibit is open until October 25, 2017.  For more information, please contact the Langley Centennial Museum at 604.532.3536 or curator@tol.ca.
