We visited this museum whilst the USS Theodore Roosevelt was visiting. The museum is very impressive, amazing to be able to look at the preserved remains of the ship and the amazing array of artefacts which have been brought up, many in amazing condition. I wonder why the ship has small viewing windows in the wall at various heights -... More

What a fascinating visit. Mary Rose built in 1510, sunk in the Solent, the remains preserved by silt at the bottom of the sea, and on show through glass. They have done an amazing job. We spent the whole morning touring the ship and museum. A real must for anyone in Portsmouth.

We could not believe that the remains of this ship was 475 years old and what a fascinating visit. It was built for King Henry VIII in 1510 and was sunk in the battle of the Solent against the French fleet. The remains of this ship were preserved by the silt at the bottom of the sea and it is...

Very well done. Mum and I were on a family history tour of the UK & our ancestory led us to the Mary Rose. World class museum with fabulous artefacts recovered from this iconic ship. Of course the highlight is the actual ship! Learning about how they recovered it & how they are preserving it is fascinating! It takes years... More

This really is a high-caliber musuem on a subject I knew nothing about but left well informed but not overloaded. I like how they tried to bring a personal touch to this through the people on board.

This is a museum to drift slowly through to absorb the displays and try to envisage what the whole of life was like in the C16. There is no attempt to explain what really happened that day but there is so much of interest that you could easily spend 3/4 hours there. There is a clever connection between 20th century... More

Being able to see the Mary Rose being dried out was amazing. The amount of work and effort being done is fantasic. There is a lot to see in this museum ad takes a while to get round but its well worth it.
