National Media Museum
Wonderful for kids and adults alike! Besides the cinemas, you have photo exhibits and interactive displays. Don't miss the IMAX screen, for a good 3D experience. You can also try your TV talents at the TV interactive section...
the photographic museum
Has free entry, although you pay for the IMAX if you wish to view it, and you can fill half a day browsing round the musuem which covers film and TV as well as photography. Some displays are interactive and the shop sells some interesting gifts as well!

Watch the City Lights
The fringes of the city spread out from the valley floor over the slopes beyond the ridges. It is a great experience in this area to drive on a hilltop road and watch the city lights down in the dales.
From Manchester driving to east-north direction for about an hour we got to Bradford. The Britian Movie Museum and the biggest film cinema in all England are built here. Many new techniques, like big screen (5 floor building high, 10 times area than common), 6 channel surround stereo, very big film projector (size like a car), seats without obstacle, etc.
When we watched film in this cinema we were shook by scene on the screen and can?t help to cry and to move body of ourselves!
Saltaire - World Heritage site
Sir Titus Salt was a christian industrialist who believed his workers in the factory along the river Aire in Bradford needed a better life to be productive. He thought they would have a better life without drinking alcohol in pubs and the like but this is the only thing he went wrong with if you ask me. Apart from that, he created modern housing, a shop and an art gallery for his workers and since the factory has long since closed, it has been turned into a sight for all to see and recognised by the UN which has recently made it a World Heritage site.
National Museum of Film, Photography & Television
One of my favourite museums as it is about photography. There is always a photo exhibition of some sort. Apart from that, there is a room where YOU are the newsreader and several other exhibitions on moving images such as film and TV. There is also an IMAX cinema with films about space, Earth or similar.
