“IMAX 3D - expensive, but worth it”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We went to see the Hobbit in 3D - it was excellent (but could do with a little more leg room) - It cost £11 per person and had to be booked on line in advance.
We were sidetracked by the games room on the way out (re-living our childhood!) It is amazing the amount of interact stuff you can do for free in the museum - aimed at 6-15 year olds really (but we had fun!)
Parking was a huge problem and the nearest multistory car park was very expensive.

“Hasn't changed much in 10 years, but still Bradford's best”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

It's without doubt the best thing to do in Bradford - but therein lies the problem. It simply doesn't change enough to justify visiting more than every 3/4 years, because you do find yourself remembering every single exhibit it has.
