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!

Upstream/Downriver: Walking the stɑl̓əw̓ Watershed
October 23, 2021 - February 6, 2022
Upstream/Downriver: Walking the stɑl̓əw̓ Watershed is a collaborative research-creation project that addresses climate change at the local, granular scale of the lower Fraser River watershed. Artists walked with experts from a wide range of backgrounds–Indigenous knowledge holders, scientists, philosophers and poets–inviting their observations on climate impacts along the lower Fraser Valley watershed. Reflecting on the knowledge shared during these walks, the artists have created an immersive installation experience in the Museum's temporary exhibit space. Combining video, sound, installation and drawing to connect viewers to the devastating realities of climate impacts in our region, the work also gives voice to the river, pointing the way to how we may reimagine our relationship with the land and learn to walk in a good way on this territory we call home.
