Visited the museum for the first time since I was a child. The exhibitions were fascinating and very interactive at some points. Definitely worth a visit for young families and anyone who enjoys the history of broadcasting and photography

If you have any interest in media, film, television or other technology this is definitely the place to visit. There is a huge display of equipment some operating and some static, but all very informative and interesting.

Took 10 and 8 year old kids up on recommendation of a mate from Yorkshire. Thought it was fabulous keeping the kids captivated for 3-4 hours which takes some doing!
