If visit the fort that is one unique experience, the way of life then, try to go when there is an actual event going on, even better. As I was told never seen any action, war, rather trading place, no matter. No dogs allowed, unfortunate. But after the visit and if not tired yet. Take a walk in downtown, nice... More

Visited this site with two children, who completed their discovery pass. They had a lot of fun and learned a lot about local history. We are moving to BC from Ontario and we will definitely visit this place again when we live here. We had lunch here in the restaurant and it was delicious.

This is a great place to take children to learn a bit about the history of British Columbia and our relationship with First Nations people. Many of the exhibits in the fort are hands on, which is great for the kids. There are also many helpful staff members dressed in period costumes who are there to answer questions and provide...

Wonderful interactive opportunities to make one feel as if they are part of the fort culture. My 81 year old mother, my 58 year old husband and I ALL had fun! We 'Built hand pails, sluiced for gold, sawed a tree, built a shed, made a model fort, put food on a plate' etc. But, the docents advised that we... More

Thank you for your review. It sounds like you were doing our kids Xplorers program. The stamps are mounted throughout the fort and are marked with "X" signs. Once you participate in the activity described in the booklet, the stamp is a self-serve station nearby. We hope you will get a chance to visit us again soon to finish the... More

We spent 3-4 hours at the park watching demos, building, learning and having fun as a young, busy family. Both the toddler and 6 year old enjoyed it. Would go back and visit again.

Fort Langley is a recreated historical site, using some authentic buildings. Visitors are treated to demonstrations of coopering or blacksmithing, and can talk to costumed and well informed guides in each venue. The gold panning trough is messy fun and tiny nuggets of gold actually do show up now and then. It's a grand day our for your visitors to... More
