About us

The Science Museum Group is here to inspire futures. As part of this world leading collective, the National Science & Media Museum (NSMM) has an exciting strategic vision, to realise its ambition to be an internationally recognised museum.

Thanks to National Lottery players, NSMM recently received initial support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to start developing new Sound and Vision galleries. Sound and Vision: a £6 million project to highlight key objects and stories from our world-class collections of photography, film, television, animation, videogames and sound technologies.

As part of the Sound and Vision project, we’ll work in close consultation with local communities to make the museum the cultural cornerstone of many key projects in and around the city, including Bradford’s bid to be the City of Culture in 2025, the city’s culture strategy Culture is Our Plan, and the commitment to building a digital economy.

NSMM also houses Pictureville, a 3-screen cinema operation which includes Europe’s first IMAX. It hosts an exciting and diverse mix of the best in classic and new Cinema releases, and its success is key to both Commercial Enterprises and the wider success of the Museum.
