The Mary Rose Museum is home to the Mary Rose and the thousands of artefacts that were recovered from the Solent. Built between 1509 and 1511, The Mary Rose was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favourite of King Henry VIII. After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology. After a 34 year conservation project, the Mary Rose is now fully on display within her purpose-built museum.

Fantastic museum. The artefacts recovered are just amazing!! So much attention to detail. From the ships dog to how many rats to what they ate. Brilliant

Excellent museum. Very clever use of technology to project images on the recovered wreck to replicate what jobs people did in each part of the ship.

Thanks Simon. That's really helpful and means I can give my son good news about the Mary Rose - he's obsessed. I'm sure we'll enjoy our holiday and will make plans to go back when there's more to see, Cheers, Helen
