We spent far longer here than we had expected. The whole exhibition is well displayed and very informative, giving a real insight into the lives of the people who were aboard the ship when she sank.

I have noticed that the degree of interest a museum offers appears to be in inverse proportion to the amount of money that has been spent on it.

This is well worth a visit so interesting and so full of history. I will go again next year because the ship will be easy to see when the barriers come down and it will be as if you are walking though the Mary Rose.

Having taken our 4 year old grandson to see The Victory earlier this year, we returned today (ticket gives free admissision for the rest of the year) without any children in tow to take in the Mary Rose exhibition. Having stopped in the coffee shop first, we then entered the museum. We remembered seeing the yellow inflatable lifting gear on... More

A lovely museum showing off the remains of the Mary Rose and the contents that found on the the bottom of the sea as well as information on how it was found and eventually raised from the bed. There is plenty of information on the objects on the site and some interactive parts in the museum which are mainly based... More

Wonderful artefacts from the wreck. Brilliant interactive exhibits. Fantastic to see the one half of the wreck that was recovered without all the water cascading over it. Allow at least 2-3 hours.
