National Media Museum



Visit date:


Located in Bradford city centre, the museum consists of different activities to participate in including interactive galleries, IMAX theatre including one of the largest 3D screens to watch the latest films with space for wheelchair users, alongside cultural and educational activities and events. A number of wheelchairs are available for use within the museum which can be booked in advance. There are parking spaces for blue badge holders in the car park. Easy access toilets are available on three levels within the museum, two lifts are available one in particular to accesses all floors, both lifts contain audio announcements, braille and/or raised buttons. The museum shop is also wheelchair accessible and there is a lovely café inside the museum to grab a bite to eat serving a variety of food with really good service, within the café there are two heights of tables to accommodate wheelchair users and all seating is movable. Recommended for a fun day out with great facilities.

Transport & Parking


There is a car park around the back and front of the museum. There are spaces specifically for blue badge holders which are located at the front of the museum with a maximum stay of 4 hours.



The entrance to the front of the building is level with automatic barrel doors. There are also automatic push button doors at the rear of the building for those entering from the car park entrance.



There are a number of easy access toilets available on the ground floor, level 3, 5 and the picture Ville bar with enough room to manoeuvre



Staff were helpful and friendly with good manners.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

Lots to get involved in especially if interested in science, photography and media. The IMAX was fantastic, great screen to watch films in 3D and a great atmosphere. The café was lovely with plenty selection of food and drinks.
