The newly refurbished National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, has successfully launched a new £1.8m gallery, available for events.

As part of the Science Museum Group, the museum aims to reflect its focus on the science behind the magic of photography, television and film, while the new gallery, Wonderlab, explores the science of light, sound and images through exhibits. It has recently welcomed the arrival of astronaut Tim Peake’s spacecraft.

“The rebrand of the museum and launch of the new gallery is incredibly exciting for the entire venue team,” said Michelle Rennoldson, sales and events manager at the National Science and Media Museum.

Wonderlab is available for corporate and private events. As part of the new gallery, guests will be able to see their body split for their head as they walk, experience an anti-gravity mirror, as well as one of the first 3D-printed zoetrope installations.

“The aim is to draw in new visitors to the museum, as well as increase the number of corporate and private events we host. Wonderlab adds to the museum’s existing suite of event spaces, and offers the perfect setting for drinks receptions where guests can network among the exhibits and enjoy watching spectacular experiments.”
