Exhibits

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 Indigenous woodcarvings, tools, stone sculptures, and basketry. Learn how early Asian and European settlers 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!

Critical Care: Environmental Stewardship in Langley

July 24, 2021 - October 3, 2021

Langley’s ecosystems are in a precarious situation. As urban development continues, residents and organizations have stepped forward to support our valuable waterways and natural spaces. Several of these groups have partnered with Langley Centennial Museum in their latest exhibit, “Critical Care: Environmental Stewardship in Langley.” Organizations featured include Langley Environmental Partners Society, Little Campbell Watershed Society, Yorkson Watershed Enhancement Society, Langley Field Naturalists, Glen Valley Watersheds Society, Nicomekl Enhancement Society, Salmon River Enhancement Society, and Climate Crisis Langley Action Partners.

Through independent action and organized efforts, many Langley residents are doing their part to preserve, protect, and enhance our local biodiversity. The new exhibit highlights this critical care being delivered every day in our communities, shining a spotlight on work that many residents may not be aware of. “There are so many ways to get involved, and the stewardship groups exhibiting here are active and can use your support,” said Lisa Dreves, LEPS Stewardship Coordinator.

In addition to the local groups involved, a Tsawwassen documentary film maker is also participating. Jocelyn Demers is an independent producer and the owner of Monde Films, and his moving 2018 documentary “The Watershed Guardians of the Fraser River” is playing in the gallery alongside the current exhibit. 

 

“From identifying your watershed on a map, watching a documentary, or playing the “Salmon Power” board game, there’s many ways to learn more about our ecosystems and what is being done to support them,” noted Kobi Christian, Arts & Heritage Curator. “We hope this exhibit inspires people to do what they can, where they can, to support our natural places. Every little bit helps.” 

 

A couple of the exhibiting groups will be setting up outside the museum on Saturday mornings in August to provide even more information, and connections to their work through an activity. For morer more details contact 604.532.3536 or lcmbookings@tol.ca
