Newest Review: ... intolerance. However for those with no such restrictions there were some nice cakes and sandwiches to offer a bit of sustenance with a cup of coffee. After this brief respite we began to wander the ground floor which, at the time, had a very enlightening display about the internet. Under the floor, beneath perspex, were computer monitors and other pieces of hardware to illustrate the way ... more

This museum is a fantastic example of the twenty-first century in action. Across six floors you'll find an array of exhibitions and galleries which help show the ways in which media and technology have developed since film, television, radio and other digital forms were first conceived. The best thing about the museum is the interactivity: this is anything but a boring "read and walk" museum with nothing but pictures and information to inform you; rather the museum is packed with things to touch, do, play with and - of course - learn. Parking near the museum isn't always the easiest thing and like most cities, driving into Bradford isn't the ... Read the complete review

The National media museum housed in the centre of Bradford is a great free day out! Comprised of eight galleries there really is something which will interest both big and small people. Exhibitions do change for example currently the phenomena that is soap opera is being explored. A favourite in my house was the exhibit which aims to explain how television has changed over time and has interactive displays where children an develop a basic understanding of some of the tricks of television e.g you can become a teletubby or read the weather infront of a blue screen or read the news at the newsdesk. The animation gallery is fascinating and you can come ... Read the complete review

The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television has now changed its' name to the much snappier "National Media Museum" . We have just visited this place (April 2009) and amazingly, it is still free to enter. It's open 10 am till 6.00 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. I first visited this place around 15 years ago, and having just been back, I have got to say, it has changed and improved a lot. Spread over 6 floors, it's in a shiny building right in the centre of Bradford: it is signposted by the brown 'leisure' signs from the main motorways and A-roads, although of course, the brown signs all disappear when you get within a ...

The minimalist chrome interior was a stark contrast to the run down and decaying suburban exterior. A weekend trip to Leeds had led to a day trip to Bradford, which had in turn led to a good few hours being spent here, at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television. History Since it’s founding in 1983, the museum has been the most visited national museum outside London, attracting approximately 750,000 visitors each year. It’s part of the National Museum of Science and Industry, and was set up in Bradford because of the city's contribution to the development of cinema and film-making in the UK over the years. The ...
