Lovely small and compact museum, very welcoming with a small café. Free admission too. We enjoyed seeing the Mold golden cape ( one of the top treasures found in Britain ) when it visited for a limited period.

Went looking for information on a Wrexham ancestor and Staff were really helpful as we searched through newspaper microfiche for relevant facts and articles. The museum displays are good too and as this used to be the old Police Station and Court house it is a part of Wrexham history itself. The cafe was excellent - and a perfect respite... More

The museum was informative but repeated itself in some places eg info on the wall and cards on the cases the same. Where in other places the exhibits had numbers but there was no where that said what they were!

Took my son for a visit. He enjoyed it, but found a lot of it quite boring. Best part for him was the dinosaurs. Nothing else really took his interest. The gift shop is quite small and strangely located not only in the entrance to the museum but sitting on the knees of the cafe a well.
