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.

Food For Health



January 15 – March 18, 2012

The staff at the Langley Centennial Museum is happy to bring our community and visitors “Food For Health,” a bilingual travelling exhibit created by the Canada Agriculture Museum, in collaboration with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and other exhibition partners. Food for Health addresses, from a consumer’s point of view, concerns and questions that many Canadians have about the safety of their food supply, and the role food plays in ensuring good health.
Food For Health Displays
By combining hands-on interactive components, multimedia technology, historical artifacts and graphics, the exhibition showcases Canadian initiatives designed to ensure that our food is as safe as possible. Food for Health provides Canadians with the knowledge they need to protect themselves against food-borne illnesses through safe food-handling practices. It will also investigate evidence of links between diet, physical activity and obesity, and illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Food For Health Displays
New programming opportunities have been initiated in anticipation of this exciting new show. For more information, please contact the museum at 604.532.3536 or information@langleymuseum.org.
