The museum is on Regent Street in the centre of Wrexham. Wrexham General and Wrexham Central Railway Stations are both less than ten minutes' walk away.

The bus station on King Street is even closer as the Museum building faces the bus station.

There is a pay and display car park at Island Green, behind the Museum and 5 minutes' walk from the museum entrance.

Look out for fingerpost signs around the town pointing you towards the museum.
