Xplore! Science Discovery centre is where science lives in North Wales. We are chock full of spellbinding science, incredible experiences, and a chance for the whole family to get involved with science to create some amazing memories. A visit to Xplore! involves exploring over 80 interactive exhibits as well as an amazing science show on a rotating series of topics. No two visits to Xplore! are ever truly alike.

Xplore! isn’t just a visitor attraction we offer science themed birthday parties allowing young people to get stuck into slime, blast off with rockets and walk with dinosaurs. Our science shop is probably the only one in north Wales and is stuffed full of experiments and activities, it allows visitors to continue their discovery at home. In the heart of Wrexham, Xplore! is a perfect visit for all ages.
