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!

Beginning's End: An Artistic and Celebratory Send-Off

June 7 - September 30, 2022

Beginning's End: An Artistic and Celebratory Send-off

This exhibition, Beginning’s End: An Artistic and Celebratory Send-Off, marks the closing of the 64-year-old Langley Centennial Museum. This final exhibit celebrates the local groups and artists who have exhibited here over the years, and the role of the Langley Centennial Museum in our community.

The Langley Centennial Museum first opened on July 1, 1958. In 1974, the National Exhibition Centre opened as an addition to the existing Museum. This gallery space enabled the Museum to welcome travelling exhibits from around the globe, and to highlight the arts and culture of our local community. For almost five decades, the gallery has been a space for local artists and the community to share and be inspired.

Long-exhibiting members of community arts groups including the Langley Arts Council, Fort Langley Artists Group, Fraser Valley Potters Guild, Langley Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild, Fraser Valley Watermedia Society, and local Indigenous and Metis artists coordinated in collaboration with stalew Arts & Cultural Society, have joined together in this artful send-off to the Langley Centennial Museum. Over 250 pieces of art are currently on display.

Don’t miss Beginning’s End Artist Demonstrations happening on Saturdays this summer at Langley Centennial Museum. Find out more.

Following this exhibit, the Langley Centennial Museum will close so staff can prepare to move across the street to Salishan Place by the River.
