Exhibitions go online for all to experience amid physical COVID-19 closures

While the Langley Centennial Museum has been shut for more than one month due to COVID-19 closures, their website is wide open and staff are inviting to take a virtual tour.

Two 360 Virtual Tour Experiences leads guests through the Temporary Exhibition Gallery and their Permanent Exhibition Gallery – all through the click of a mouse which people can control to go their own speeds.

In the Permanent Exhibition Gallery, people can discover the collection of First People’s woodcarvings, tools, stone sculptures, and basketry.

The Temporary Exhibition Gallery currently houses The Sporting Life: A History of Athletic Fashions, put on by fashion collector and historian Ivan Sayers.

People can visit the virtual tour portal at https://museum.tol.ca/museum/Portal/visit.aspx.
