I wandered into town an was drawn to thus place. I was not disappointed, was grinning the rest of the day as it took me to my childhood. The picture exhibit was eye opening and humbling. I would give it a 10/10 and will surely return for more

I regularly take my children to the media museum. There are often different themes going on particularly during the school holidays, with lots of activities for children to do. A great day out with the kids.

Been coming here since it had the mouthful of a name... THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF FILM AND PHOTOGRAPHY..... glad it is now simply Media. Often there are world class exhibitions.... keep an eye on the program... also best time to go is when the schools are on holiday... some of our little dears... can be a real pain.

Just visited the cafe on this occasion and really enjoyed the food as always. Had the soup which was gluten free with gluten free roll. Other gluten free options were the stew, jacket potatoes and various pasta dishes. Finished off with a delicious gluten free brownie.
