About
The Wrexham County Borough Museum is a museum covering a variety of historical periods ranging from Neolithic right up until the present day. It is a rather popular attraction in Wrexham due to the free admission, as well as being open and suitable to all ages with a number of hands on activities for younger guests. The museum is the home of a large Welsh orientated football collection as well as a variety of local artefacts. The museum often holds special events and/or exhibitions. NOTE: The Museum is now closed for redevelopment work. The building will reopen in 2026 with an enhanced Wrexham Museum and new Football Museum for Wales.

Great little local museum. We haven't been to Wrexham before so it was a good introduction to the area. The small café in the courtyard offered quality Welsh products. Staff was friendly and there was also a souvenir shop. Interesting to know about the famouse local lager, the football club & the mining history. Good morning stop before attending the St David's parade.

Nice museum where we were warmly greeted. The museum had interesting memorabilia. I particularly enjoyed the timeline of things that have happened over the years in Wrexham. I also found the film's on Wrexham FC and lager very interesting.

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 small and able to be explored in under an hour, is superb too. Lots of undaunting Welsh history and plenty to keep children amused. I really was very pleasantly surprised.

I didn't try the café but it looked really nice and the staff were brilliant too.

Lovely little museum with contemporary displays of local history and culture; some were interactive and aimed at children but interesting for adults too. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Also a really nice cafe. Well worth a visit.

The title sums it up but for more detail:
Cafe has a good menu with local produce. Good prices. Friendly staff.
Museum has made the best use of a small space. Interactive bits. It's free!
Staff cheery but not overbearing.
If you're near pop in.

Interesting way to spend an hour or so. Lots of exhibits. Very informative about the history of the local area.

Had a visit to the cafe. Not a huge amount of choice as most things seemed to be out of stock which was disappointing but what we did have was nice.
