The National Media Museum (formerly the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television) is part of the national Science Museum Group. The museum has seven floors of galleries with permanent exhibitions focusing on photography, television, animation, videogaming, the internet and the scientific principles behind light and colour. It also hosts temporary exhibitions and maintains a collection of 3.5 million pieces in its research facility. The venue also has three cinemas, including an IMAX screen and hosts two film festivals each year, including the Bradford International Film Festival.
Two new machines were added here in September 2015. These are from Pennymangle, replacing two GEM machines from PennyPressFactory. They are located on the ground floor, near the Pictureville Cinema entrance and on the 5th floor in the games room.
Each penny costs £1.
