National Science and Media Museum

At the National Science and Media Museum, in the heart of Bradford, we explore the science and culture of light and sound technologies and their impact on our lives. We aim to inspire the scientists and engineers of the future to see more, hear more, think more and do more.

Since the dawn of photography, our beloved animal companions have been immortalised on film. Curator of Photography and Photographic Technology Ruth Quinn looks at how different photographic processes have been applied to pet portraiture. 

Happy birthday to us! On 16 June 1983, we opened our doors for the very first time, as the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television. 40 years, a few name iterations and millions of visitors later, we’re still here.
