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 new 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. It includes a 525m² major exhibition gallery, the Virgin Media Studio for installations, events and creative workshops, and a café/bar. Hannah Redler was announced as Head of Media Space and Art Programme in 2012.

The Principal Founding Sponsor of Media Space is Virgin Media after whom the Studio is named. The major donor to the project is the Dana and Albert R Broccoli Foundation set up by the family of the late Bond producer. The opening programme has been made possible through the support of Founding Partner Hyundai Motor UK. Media Space has also received generous support in the form of donations or artworks for auction from a large number of individuals, companies and artists.
