My family and I love our local museum and are regular visitors. All the staff and volunteers are warm, welcoming and accommodating to young visitors. They work really hard to provide a wide variety of family friendly events and exhibitions, most of which are free which encourages participation by families of all financial circumstances. The museum has a wonderful programme... More

I'm not sure if it's all about my race, an asian being in a Welsh town-a staff was staring at me in a suspicious look since I stepped into the museum, watching me all the time while I was trying to give a close look at the artifacts, watching me while I was watching the introduction videos. And when I... More

Went specifically to see the Brymbo Swamp exhibition, travelled from Colwyn Bay. Small site, restricted exhibits. The Swamp rooms were very well done given the restrictions. Some of the other exhibits appeared somewhat ad hoc. Why oh why did some of the touch screens not work. They were in the same condition when we visited last year. Wrexhamm CC get... More

Great museum, in a beautiful, historic building. Lovely staff, nice cafe and good exhibits. For its size, it's great. We went on the first of April to see the historic land speed record breaker ' Babs '. She was there just for one day and was fantastic to see. All in all thoroughly recommended

Brilliant meals from a tiny kitchen, thats erves freshly cooked food, snacks and salads - and a truly great breakfast. A light and airy venue for informal meetings, or business - and a very interesting public area to view. A brilliant place, lovely people and enjoyable food. what more could one ask for!

The only reason for not giving it full marks is that it deserves to be larger! It is a lovely place, steeped in the history of years gone by. It is always exhibiting eras connected to local history and once housed (albeit briefly) the European FIFA Trophies which my 4 year old son and I went to and had photos... More

This excellent exhibition is on until June 2016 and is not to be missed! In the words of Professor Barry Jones of Aberystwrth University, who has led the study of this unique site, the fossils are 'world class.' The fossils are from the coal seam at Brymbo. There is also a fossilised 'tree' - which was fossilised in its growing... More

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
