I have been reading about the Mary Rose for years and was excited to finally visit. I stayed all day and left with my head swimming with new knowledge. The presentation and thoughtfulness of the displays made me feel as if I knew some of the sailors. The enormity of the undertaking of bringing up the Mary Rose and her... More

This was amazing. I remember seeing this being raised from the Solent on the cradle & everyone gasping when she almost fell off!! From the very beginning to now the progress has been staggering & i will keep coming back because theres always something that i missed on the last visit.

A superb quality exhibition, must be amongst the best in the world, 500 years of history and so many interesting artefacts. Well worth buying the historic shipyard ticket at £28 (£21 on-line), with the Victory and many other ships to see included.

Excellently presented, researched and incredibly restored, the Mary Rose is more than just a museum - it's an amazing experience! Brought to life again after all those years under the sea, it is truly fascinating - entertainingly explained and expertly set out so that visitors of all ages really get to feel part of historical maritime life.

I spent 4 hrs walking around the Mary Rose Wreck and it was fantastic, the money and time spent organising the relics and show pieces is second to none to others I have visited. It is set out it such a way that it is so easy to follow the lives of the Men that sailed on the Mary Rose.... More

The actual Mary Rose ship is pretty well gone after being submerged for centuries but the artifacts raised with it are very interesting and give a good picture about life on board. Good lunch at the cafe in Museum.

Very interesting place to visit. Lots of History. Lots of Tudor Artefacts.The Displays are very good. Helps you to understand what life must have been like in the Tudor Years. Was very enjoyable. You do need a good few hours to look round.

fascinating! Amazing to think that any of this boat has survived after being underwater for all those years. Viewing will be even better in years to come when all the drying pipes have been removed

Well worth coming to visit. Excellent information panels and a wonderful layout. The collections on display were just right, not too cluttered but linked by themes. Also loved seeing the Mary Rose and learning about the process of drying her out. it was like walking back in history Cannot recommend enough
