Ideas Hub: Join the conversation

This spring, we want to hear from you. Ideas Hub is an opportunity to explore our collection and tell us what you want to see at the museum.

We want to know what the National Science and Media Museum means to you. How should we tell stories from our collection of film, photography, television and sound? This is your chance to have a chat with staff, let us know your ideas, and have a lasting impact on how we present our exhibitions and displays.

Ideas Hub will also include a display of unique objects from our collection and work by photographer Tim Smith.
