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.

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.

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.
