science and media museum location bradford


The National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, West Yorkshire, opened in 1983, and has since become one of the most visited UK museums outside London.

It draws on more than three million objects from its national collection to explore the science and culture of image and sound technologies, and their impact on our lives.   The Museum creates special exhibitions, interactive galleries and activities for families and adults, and is home to three cinemas, including Europe’s first IMAX cinema screen and the world’s only remaining public Cinerama screen.

Entry to the Museum is free.

NOTE: The museum is temporarily closed to the public for refurbishment until summer 2024, but Pictureville Cinema is open 7-days a week.
