Media Space showcases the National Photography Collection held by the National Media Museum through a series of major exhibitions and events

Media Space is a bold and exciting photography and art gallery on the second floor of the Science Museum.

Media Space offers a programme of exhibitions and events drawing on our world-class National Photography Collection and the broader Science Museum Collections. Bringing together photographers, artists, curators and the creative industries Media Space explores relationships between, and lesser-known histories of, photography, science, art and technology.

Media Space is a collaboration between the Science Museum and the National Media Museum in Bradford, home of the National Photography Collection.
