The museum is temporarily closed, but the Collections Services team are still hard at work. In this post, you’ll meet the team and find out what they do.
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.
We explore the legacy of our Life Online gallery, which told the story of the cultural, social, and technological impact of the internet.
This year we’re celebrating not only 40 years of the National Science and Media Museum, but also the 40th birthday of the region’s biggest screen—our beloved IMAX.
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.
The museum may be temporarily closed until summer 2024 while we undergo a once-in-a-generation transformation, but our collections and stories are always open for all.
Bradford Science Festival is back this half term with an unmissable line-up of hands-on experiences, live events and performances, exploring how we use science and technology to see the hidden world all around us.
Sunday 30 April was World Pinhole Day, and to mark the occasion we teamed up with the Bradford School of Art to explore the world of pinhole photography.
Hit It! is an unusual (and often amusing) installation that captures candid portraits of people in motion.
