The Collections Centre is a research facility for visitors interested in the museum’s collections.
We have been collecting objects since 1982 and now have over 16,000 in our collection.
The collection aims to tell the story of Wrexham County Borough and its people throughout time and includes archaeology, art, social history, textiles, industrial and economic history, natural history and military history.
Welsh Football Collection
Wrexham Museum is home to the Welsh Football Collection. The collection was established in 2000 with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and is the largest collection of Welsh football memorabilia held in public ownership in Wales. Highlights include material related to John Charles, Wales shirts from international games, and medals and trophies relating to all levels of the game in Wales.
We are always looking at how we can develop our museum collection to better reflect the history of Wrexham County Borough and its people through time.
You can find out more about our collections and what we collect in our Collections Development Policy 2020-2025 (link). If you have an item you would like us to consider for the museum collection, please contact us below providing as much information as possible
Identification and enquiries
Did you know Wrexham Museum runs an identification and enquiry service? If you have an object that you don’t know what it is or how old it is, or if you have an enquiry about an object in our collection, please contact us using the link below and we will do our best to help.
With over 16,000 objects in our collection it is not possible to have every item on display at the same time. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t see them. If you wish to see something that is currently not on display, please contact us using the details below and we can arrange a time for you to visit the Collections Centre to see the item up close. We aim to make as much of our collections accessible as possible to members of the public but please be aware some items may not be accessible due to health and safety requirements.
