We were amazed at how many items had been collected from the Mary Rose and how much they reflected life at that time. I was particularly interested in the tools of the carpenter. Many of which had not changed in nearly 500 years. The ship had departments not too dissimilar to the sections on a modern day ship - Galley,... More

This was the first time, I've been since the museum opened. Before it was almost in a series of port cabins. Now, you can see the ship clearly without mist and many of the artefacts on board, never on display before. Testing your skills as an archer brings everything to life.

Spent all afternoon here and still didn't see it all! Well laid out and fascinating subject. The staff were friendly and extremely informative. Also really appreciated the little stools one could pick up and take around the museum! Will have to go back as there is so much to see.

If you love your history. ... go see it. Absolutely fascinating! I was 13 when I first heard of the Mary Rose. My history teacher was extatic. ...

If you enjoy all history this is one place well worth the visit. The information offered here regarding life at sea, this vessel,those who probably sailed on her, and the raising of this great ship are worth seeing. If you have small children there are interactive games dotted around too.

This has been a cultural highlight and will take some beating. Every case in the museum had me gasping in amazement. The ship itself is incredible but the quality and quantity of artefacts dredged up from 470 years ago, and the inventive and engaging ways in which they are presented, blew my mind again and again. Magical.

Another must see when in Portsmouth. Now housed in a very modern futuristic purpose built exhibition hall. That has won architectural prizes, but personally looks out of place in the historic Georgian Dockyard. Once inside there is The "Mary Rose" and all the items of live aboard a Tudor warship to wonder at.

Interesting in that it is almost ready for a full display. Crowded as unfortunately we were there on Bank Holiday.
