I was actually looking for somewhere to have a cuppa but ended up having a good wander around. The museum is free and it's an excellent little museum, well laid out with lots of interesting artefacts. The cafe was great too, lovely coffee and friendly staff. Well worth stopping by.

Locely coffee shop with some good cake... and a stunning museum to take you back as far as 1600BC... interactive and informative! A real treat and serene get away from the "hustle and bustle" of Wrexham. A must see... friendly service

I had arranged to go to this museum as it was local to me and had someone with me to attend the craft sessions running on Tuesday's during the school holidays. There was a short wait for the session and the museum itself is so small it has very little to occupy you whilst you wait. Afterwards a member of... More

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
