Antiques in a window (David Gluns photo)
To truly understand British Columbia's rich and diverse history, head for the museums in Fort Langley, a colourful, historic village nestled on the south bank of the Fraser River.
In 1858, the emerging Western Canadian province was declared a crown colony of Great Britain at the stockade-enclosed fort. The fort, now a National Historic Site complete with costumed interpreters, and the nearby CN Station (a heritage train station), are key Fort Langley historic sites that attract visitors, and local museums offer additional cultural insights. Another main attraction, The Canadian Museum of Flight, is located outside Fort Langley, at Langley Regional Airport.
