Xplore! Science Discovery Centre is delighted to have received the Gold Award from Visit Wales. The Science Centre, which opened in 2020, is bringing science to life for all in North Wales and beyond.

The Gold Award is given to attractions that have achieved excellence in their facilities and customer service under Visit Wales’ Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Service (VAQAS). The inspectors commended Xplore! on its range of exhibits and displays, its interactive science show and the range of products available in their shop and café.

Xplore! is joining an exclusive list of attractions across Wales to receive the Gold Award. As the only attraction in Wrexham to have received this distinction, Xplore! Science Discovery Centre has been recognised as one of the premier attractions in Wrexham and North Wales.

Centre Manager Scot Owen said “We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award from Visit Wales. We are immensely proud of the work that has gone into creating and maintaining the centre. The team at Xplore! is fantastic and I am delighted that our hard work has been recognised.

We look forward to improving the centre and carrying the Gold Award forward into 2023.”

Lynda Powell the Executive Director of Operations at Wrexham Glyndŵr University and a member of the board of trustees of North Wales Science Limited said “Wrexham Glyndŵr University is immensely proud of Xplore! The provision of an interface between the cutting-edge science and technology of Glyndŵr University and the public is incredibly important.

Visit Wales recognising the excellent work that Xplore! Science Discovery Centre has been doing with the awarding of the Gold Award is a culmination of almost 20 years of hard work”
