Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This museum is a great way to spend an hour learning about the area. It's informative, well presented and the interactives are meaningful and engaging for adults and children alike. The special exhibitions on when we were there were First World War propaganda art and Superhero cartoons which is nice and varied and attractive to lots of different people. The HLF support the museum has received has been well spent. My only minor criticism is that it would have been nice to see more objects in display in the main gallery. Overall a lovely visit!

For a truly tiny museum this place offers great variety. Lots for little children to lift and press. Good magnetic wall mounted board game to teach about Princes of Wales. Clean. Cosy. Friendly. Light bright café.

Visited with grandchildren. A very small museum with some local history. Also a small display relating to Brymbo Man that really caught the imagination of our 7 year old. Another small current exhibition is about Wales International football. Some memories there. Free entry and a small popular cafe. Worth a visit. T

Very interesting, especially the part about the miners at Bersham colliery. Nice coffee shop too. Small museum but good.

Very pleased that you enjoyed our recent exhibition: The Last One Standing: The Tale of Bersham Colliery, which was put together in partnership with the North Wales Miner's Association, a fabulous group of people with a wealth of knowledge. Hope that you can come back and visit the Museum again soon.
