Although quite small this museum contains lots of local interest artefacts all well set out in various display cabinets. There are some interactive elements too with touch screens or button activated displays. Right now there is a modest exhibition of Egyptian artefacts and the explanation of how writing came to be developed. This Museum is FREE to enter and has... More

I took a friend with me when the Cape of Gold was on display here. It had been unearthed in Mold and subsequently carefully cleaned professionally. The exhibition was touring the country at the time and although there were a lot of school parties during our visit it was not a problem. Afterwards we had tea in the cafe -... More

I went to see the Egyptian exhibition which was very interesting. It is only a small museum but worth a visit. Everything was labelled but some were hard to read in the dim light.

I visited to look at the Egyptian Exhibition currently on until Sept 2015. There are only about 8 cabinets but all have amazing artefacts, on loan from the British Museum, showing the writing tools and includes shabtis, a seated scribe, stelae, papyrus' and pottery. Free admission and the museum has a good little cafe with great coffee!

We called in to see the new Ancient Egypt Exhibition which was advertised in the local press. A bit disappointed with the place to be honest, not the actual exhibition but the behaviour of the museum volunteers. When we visited the museum it was "staffed" by volunteers, some in particular were quite young. This was not a problem until we... More

Very small museum which takes you the local history of Wales. The admission is free into the museum. The most interesting section of the museum is the Brymbo Man... Supposedly found a skull in an excavation near Wrexham and the scientists have given it a face as well... Quite fascinating

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.
