I took my 6 yo daughter and she loved every minute of the visit. The guides were amazing. We went on a rainy day and even that didn't ruin the visit. I recommend a visit.

This was a good museum or walk through historical village but one felt after having seen the blacksmith that there were few other actors. The main house had no guides in it to explain anything. There wasn't much there to warrant the price of the ticket.

Being one of the few Parks Canada sites near Vancouver, I expected a better experience and activities for my boys (8 &5). We learned a lot but it was very self guided with not many materials to guide us. I was hoping that the Gift Store would have had at least one book about the Fort, but it was more... More

This step back in time provides kids with an excellent educational opportunity plus lots of outdoor space to run around. Plan ahead: different seasons offer different displays and events.

I really enjoyed Fort Langley we had great weather and we walked along the pier.. browsed the antique stores and bought all sorts of cranberry products! Plenty of adorable little restaurants in which to eat and small coffee shops. Well worth it for a relaxed.fun day trip either with family or couples or for friends.

I always enjoy taking out of town visitors here in the summer. My grandkids really enjoy panning for gold playing games that the volunteers organize. The Fort really gives one an idea of what life was like in the early days of B.C.

We visited the Fort on a typical rainy west coast day in February where we were practically the only ones there. It may have been because of the time of year, but there were no volunteers to speak with anywhere, and some of the displays were only partially completed. One of the buildings had almost nothing in it. The outside... More
