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

Only a small building, but is packed well with some interesting artefacts. Exhibitions change regularly so worth popping in now and again to see whats been changed, or look up their social media activity as to when they change the exhibits. Nice little coffee shop in the front of the building. Parking available nearby, but is all paid parking.

A small museum but enough to keep you occupied for some time. Unfortunately it was not possible to read all the information notes in the displays due to their positioning and the lighting angles - they seemed to be placed as a secondary thought but otherwise a very interesting and free museum on the edge of the shopping area.

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
