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.

Museum is absolutely wonderful. There is a really intresting old content. Children can try how the 18th century Wrexham smell, play a trivia game, and find out how prehistoric person look like. Small, but very modren museum, that helps to understand history.

The museum is housed in the building that used to be the local police station and court house. The museum is free and there is a lot of information about Wrexham through the ages and display cabinets with a lot of different items in. There are information boards about the Brymbo man whose remains were found in the 1950s and... More

The Wrexham Museum, housed in the old court house, showcases excellent examples of life gone by and the history of Wrexham. It is not a stuffy or boring exhibition but a user-friendly experience for all ages. The cafe, situated at the front of the building, is open to the public in general - entrance to the museum is not mandatory.... More

Some staff are friendly and others more reserved. The sandwiches and soup are excellent. The old building which has been remodelled from the old Wrexham Police Station and courthouse has been done very tastefully. You can also have a free visit to the museum.

As a new resident in Wrexham (due to work) I read about the Mole Cape in the local paper and hadn't actually realised that the town had a museum until then so I toddled off to its very central location to have a gander. It was lovely to see such an important artefact but the rest of the museum, while... More
