The National Science and Media Museum located in Bradford, England, closed its doors in June 2023 for a major "once in a generation" redevelopment that will see a $7.5 million / £6 million redesign. 

The museum was initially expected to be completed this summer, but it will now be pushed back to 2025 to align with the Bradford district’s UK City of Culture celebrations. However, as fortuitous as this sounds, the delays were down to the unexpected excavation work on an additional passenger lift shaft.
