Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The Bradford Telegraph and Argus reports that improvements costing nearly £400,000 to Bradford’s National Media Museum’s foyer should be completed next month. The upgrade includes a new electronic information board, a new box office, a shop and a computer games lounge.

Colin Philpott, director of the museum, said: “We are creating a more effective flow of people. The first thing the majority of new visitors ask is where the toilets are. The new welcome board, as we’re calling it, will give people more direction where things are. The new games lounge will enable people to play mainly-1980s arcade computer games. We regard electronic games as an area we want to develop.”

In addition the museum has revised its Friends of Film programme. The changes will be the first revamp of the foyer area since the expanded museum re-opened in 1999.

This blog reported last year that a London design consultancy had been employed to revamp the museum's signage and this is part of that process.
