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

I visited the museum for the first time to see the Golden Cape in the flesh at last, having seen it every school day as a picture on the corridor wall at the Alun Grammar School, Mold and was fascinated by its history. The real thing was hauntingly amazing as the centre piece of a brilliantly informative exhibition in Wrexham... More

Although the museum is quite small it is good in its content with a lot of interactive displays and videos to watch. Part of museum was closed so didn't see it all. It was clean and the toilets were spotless. There is a cafe but I didn't use it.

It was the prospect of seeing the Mold cape back in Wales that attracted us initially. It is an exceptionally well presented exhibition and it seems that there have been 8000 visitors so far. If you haven't yet been it will be well worth doing so. The way the cape is presented takes your breath away. Indeed all this small... More

My first time visit to this excellent little museum. Very well laid out and presented. Seeinf the Golden Cape here was a treat. I've seen it several times in the British Museum but the way it's displayed in Wrexham, beautifully lit in a darkened room, really is breathtaking.
