My husband and I visited this museum mainly to see the doll on show which used to sit in the window of a house facing the road up to Coed Poeth from Wrexham. This doll was part of my childhood memories, and for my children also. It is a small museum with free entry but there is a donation box.... More

Really glad you enjoyed your visits to the Wrexham County Borough Museum & Archives. Elizabeth the 'doll in the window', her many letters and Ted were donated to the Museum by Mrs Peters' in 2009. 'Doll' and Ted were a popular landmark in Coedpoeth for over 30 years ! More

Situated at the front of the Museum providing direct access to the building is the small cafe providing snacks that are very well priced as excellent quality food and service. Being attached to the Museum you are able to walk directly in and view the exhibits.

An excellent small local museum which displays the history of the area. The exhibition on the local military regiment was a particular favourite. When we visited there was also an exhibition on World War 1 and on mental health - certainly something different. The staff were friendly. There is a cafe and a shop and we saw some activities had...

Deffinately worth a look if you have a hour to spare in Wrexham. The museum is located in the centre of the town close to shops and there are always exhibitions held there.

Great little museum. Felt modern and engaging. Found out more about the town than I had expected. Nice things to see. Good cafe and shop. Definitely worth a couple of hours.

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
