About

Please note that the museum will temporarily be closed until 2025 to allow for some exciting new exhibitions.

The Pictureville cinema is also presently closed.

 

The National Science and Media Museum, in the heart of Bradford, explores the science and culture of light and sound technologies and their impact on our lives. With the aim of inspiring the scientists and innovators of the future, it invites visitors to see more, hear more, think more and do more.

Its galleries and exhibition spaces help illuminate world-famous collections in photography, film and television. Explainers create learning activities that fuel the imagination and investigate the collections and exhibitions. Three cinema screens—including an IMAX theatre— showcase the magic of moving images from around the world in Bradford, the first UNESCO City of Film.

Don't Miss: The interactive gallery Wonderlab which explores the science of light, sound and perception through state-of-the-art, hands-on activities and breath-taking shows.

Admission to the National Science and Media Museum is FREE (charges apply for cinemas/IMAX).

The Media Café

Specialising in freshly prepared food, open everyday from 10am until late. Featuring deli sandwiches, house-made cakes & hand-made pizzas amongst many more delicious items, the café is perfect to visit before watching a film.
