Housed inside a modern architectural interpretation of a ship's hull, The Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard holds the remains of the 1545 vessel the Mary Rose, and offers exhibits on England's rich maritime history. Glass cases display artifacts that survived several hundred years in the sea. You can handle authentic pieces and interact with displays. The main attraction is the reconstructed remains of the ship itself, viewable on three levels via a panoramic elevator. After viewing the Mary Rose, enjoy a snack at the on-site cafe, where the name of the ship may appear atop your cappuccino froth.

  • The story that has gripped the Naval World since being raised from the seabed in 1982. The restoration work has been, and still is, a phenomenal dedication. A must visit for all the family.
  • Incredible ship! Can't wait for the restoration process to finish.
  • Another must visit if in the area, due to reopen soon after reorganisation of the museum.
  • Fantastic museam, layed out really well. Will be getting even better over the next year.
  • I went to the new Museum today with my school and everyone had an amazing time! The staff were very good, because if you asked a question they would answer it in full detail.I loved the Mini Films, they were very interesting and explained a lot too. The little computer games here and there were really good fun, I would be there and I would have my buddy beside me and we were on a team. The model of one of the members of crew was really amazing and freaky in a way! I loved the dog, everyone was like "Awww thats so cute but scary!". I would definitely go back to the Museum again with family and friends. Love Evie Woolf x
