In September 2020 we opened our brand-new science centre in the heart of Wrexham. You’ll find our home full to the brim with science, exploration, and fun. We’ve been bringing brain-teasing, mind-bending, eye-opening science to Wrexham for almost 20 years and can’t wait to continue. Our interactive science shows are famous for being full of wooshs, bangs and are constantly being refreshed check out our website to see what is currently on.

In addition to our interactive exhibit space, we have created a purpose-built science shop that sells a wide range of science experiments, toys, and gifts that are perfect for all ages. Both our science shop and new café area are open from 09:30 am till 4:30 pm. Our café sells a range of hot and cold drinks as well as snacks for all taste buds and dietary needs.

Not only do we have public visitors, but we also welcome school groups. A visit to Xplore! Science Centre allows all learners the opportunity to develop skills in investigating, imagination, team working, critical thinking and problem solving. For more information, please use our contact page or by emailing

We hope to meet you very soon!
