I really wanted to see the ship. Last saw it when first out of the water. But it is the artefacts which steal the show - an amazing collection of stuff preserved in the silt covering the wreck. A superb museum.

Anyone visiting the historic dockyard in Portsmouth must visit the Mary Rose museum. The painstaking work to lift preserve and restore the ship is truly amazing. The whole museum contains so many items recovered from the ship together with really good information boards. They also...More

Cannot recommend highly enough. The whole experience is amazing: the ship itself, the artefacts, the layout, the knowledgeable staff. Hard to describe how moving it is - definitely has to be seen!

On my last visit to see the Mary Rose, she was still being sprayed to prevent drying out and preserve the fabric. This time you could almost touch the vessel. And the well thought out arrangement of artefacts that have been discovered on the vessel...More

It seems that,no matter how often I visit this excellent museum, I always find something that I had not seen before. This is partly due to the excellent work of the curators who continuously add extra value to what is already, in my opinion, one...More
