The National Media Museum

If you have an interest in photography then you have to go to Bradford to the National Media Museum. If you have not seen an IMAX film then you have the opportunity to see one there. I have been to the museum a few times since it opened in 1983 and initially there were not that many IMAX cinemas around. There are quite a few more now, but it would be a convenient time to watch a film if you do get to Bradford.

The museum used to be called the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, but because they have added radio and the web they couldn't afford to make all their signs that long. In their adverts they say 'The Photography Collection is one of the finest and most extensive anywhere in the world'. It is worth going to support a national museum which is not based in London, it is worth going for all aspects of the media but it is also worth going for its photography collections.

Happy snapping
