The public will have the chance to view designs from Wrexham’s new ‘Football Museum for Wales’
Members of the public will have the opportunity this month to see what the new Wales Football Museum will look like when completed.
The new ‘museum in two halves’, at the Wrexham Museum on Regent Street, hopes to be a national attraction for Wrexham town centre, celebrating Welsh football, past and present, in all its diversity.
It will be located next to a “completely refurbished museum”, which will feature exhibits from Wrexham and North East Wales.
This month, the public will have the chance to see what the new installations will look like and learn about the type of exhibitions that will be presented in the galleries during a special open day.
Taking place at the museum on Tuesday, September 13, the event will see large-scale illustrated exhibits of the design plans for the new museums.
He will also be able to speak to the project design team in person, ask questions and offer feedback and suggestions.
Cllr Paul Roberts, Senior Member of Partnerships and Community Safety, said: “The design team has made great progress with the plans for the new museums, so we are delighted to offer this opportunity for the public to come and see the proposals up close and talk to the team in person.
“More than 500 people took part in the public consultation last year.
“The feedback received has helped inform the final design plans and we have also assembled a number of specialist and community focus groups who are working closely with us throughout the project.”
“This is a huge development for Wrexham town center which promises to attract new visitors from across the country and beyond. So I hope that as many people as possible will make the most of the opportunity to see the plans at this key stage of its development.”
The ‘family’ open day will take place on Tuesday September 13 at the Wrexham Museum on Regent Street.
There will be two opportunities to attend during the day – an afternoon session from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and an evening session from 6-8 p.m.
