About Wrexham County Borough Museum

Currently closed for major refurbishment, check the Museum's website for updates on re-opening.

Based at one of Wrexham’s landmark buildings on Regent Street, Wrexham Heritage & Archives Service is responsible for the county borough’s museums and archives.

Wrexham County Borough Museum & Archives is the starting point for discovering the eventful history of this region on the Welsh-English border.

The Museum’s displays and collections tell the stories of our local communities and their place in Wales and the wider world from prehistory up to the present day.

The Archives are the place to research the history of your family, your home, your neighbourhood and those of your ancestors.

Wrexham Heritage & Archives Service, aided by volunteers and partner organisations, is also responsible for Bersham Colliery Headgear, Bersham Ironworks Holt Castle, Minera Lead Mines and Penrhos Engine House.

The Museum of Two Halves Project

Shirt Stories
The ‘Museum of Two Halves’ is our shorthand name to describe the project that will see the development of the Football Museum for Wales and a new Wrexham Museum in the current museum building on Regent Street in Wrexham.

The new football museum will celebrate Welsh football, past and present, in all its diversity, from grassroots clubs to the national teams, as well as highlighting Wrexham’s historic achievements in the sport and celebrating the rich heritage of the County Borough.

New galleries will be created to display the Wrexham Museum collections, which means an enhanced experience for visitors and a first-class, modern venue for discovering the fascinating and eventful story of our region of North East Wales.

The museum building will close to the public in late 2023 for redevelopment work to commence.

The new museums are set to open in 2026.
