National Media Museum
West Yorkshire BD1 1NQ, UK,
The National Media Museum is part of the NMSI Museums Group (National Museum of Science and Industry) which also includes the Science Museum (based in London and at Wroughton in Wiltshire) and the National Railway Museum (based in York and at Shildon in County Durham).
We exist to engage, inspire and educate by promoting an understanding and appreciation of photography, film, television, radio and the web; using our collection and knowledge to deliver a cultural program accessibly and authoritatively.
The National Media Museum covers seven floors of a city centre building in Bradford. It offers the following:
* Permanent interactive galleries about photography, television and animation as well as the Magic Factory which explains the basic principles behind those subjects.
* Three cinemas including an IMAX showing the latest 3D films and two other auditoria - Pictureville and Cubby Broccoli - which show films you won't normally see in your local multiplex.
* Two special exhibition galleries - where we stage a rolling program of exhibitions - sometimes drawn from our collections, sometimes toured in from elsewhere.
* The BBC's Bradford radio, TV and online studio - a real, working exhibit within the Museum.
* A number of areas where learning activities - tours and talks - take place.
* A research and collections centre where much of our extensive collection is held and where you can visit for research and study.
