Living in Bradford we go whenever we have a horribly rainy day and we are getting on each others nerves. There are standing exhibits which you never tire of seeing like the old video games and then there are frequently changing special exhibitions, plus IMAX

“interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Great place to spend an hour or two and really enjoyed the floor with the 'vintage' arcade games (space invaders...pacman etc)
The floor dedicated to television inc mock studios and lots of gear from the early days of TV. All in all a great place for all age groups.

“The best cinema in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

I love seeing films here, the quality of the screens and sound is top notch and it's a far more rewarding affair than the sticky floored, noisy multiplex. Brilliant!

“Very Interesting... Bradford be Proud of this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The National Media Museum is a great place to visit, It has many floors with fun and interesting thing to do and to look at. You can pretend you are a news presenter, fly on tv using camera/screen effects or just look at the interesting media content the museum offers... I love looking to see how technology has changed over the years.

A very underated place... Well worth a visit
