The National Science and Media Museum is open 10.00–17.00, Wednesday to Sunday and every day during October half term (23–31 October). We can’t wait to welcome you back.
Join us to experience two brand new exhibitions exploring the world of sound: Sonic: Adventures in Audio and Boom: Experiments in Sound. And don’t miss a range of fantastic family events and activities as part of Bradford Science Festival throughout October half term.
Ignite your curiosity in Wonderlab, play your way through the history of videogaming in the Games Lounge, and explore how photography was invented in the Kodak Gallery—including a new permanent display telling the story of Bradford’s Belle Vue Studio.
Please note that a small number of areas of the museum will remain closed for now. See ‘what’s open?’ below for a full list of open and closed areas, and read our reopening FAQ for more information on what has changed.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors. To help us manage the number of people in the museum at one time, you’ll now need to book a free admission ticket in advance.
When booking you’ll be able to add extras such as a timed entry slot for the Games Lounge, as well as takeaway food options from our café.
The museum is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00–17.00.
During October half term (23–31 October) we will be open 10.00–17.00 every day.
