Over the years I had seen many images and programs about the Mary Rose but I had never quite imagined that so much of it and the artefacts on board had survived. The walkways matching the ship's floor levels with the real ship on one side and artefacts on the other gave a brilliant feel for how the ship would... More

This is astounding. That such a thing has been recovered and then preserved is wonderful and the interpretation inspirational. There is so much to see and experience. We went on a Saturday and it was a little crowded. Didn't have children with us but lots there were enjoying it.

For anyone who is interested in our country's history and heritage then The Mary Rose Museum is a must, it gives an insight into the life and times around King Henry viii. It is amazing how the mud has preserved the artifacts especially the long bows in a condition which gives them the look of ''just made''. Children young and... More

So much to see in the artifacts. Incredible preservation of bows, cannon, everyday items and lifelike representation of the real people. A world class museum. Would take several visits to absorb the museum. We have bought a 1 year ticket. Go as many times as you like.

We saw the Mary Rose shortly after it had been raised so it was very interesting to return so many years later to see what was happening with this ship. It is amazing seeing the ship now and learning about life on board. Don't miss the glass lift which gives you a great view of the ship.

Although near to The Mary Rose Museum we had never visited the old exhibition but decided to visit the new one and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although the ship itself is surrounded by conservation ductwork and paraphernalia you can still see the massive timbers and how she was constructed. Although the military exhibits are perhaps not my first interest, the... More

Really enjoyed this museum. The sheer size and effort that has been dedicated to this exhibition is outstanding. I still cannot fathom the significance and professionalism of the entire experience.

Very clear presentation of the artifacts of the ship. The ship herself was not easy to see which might have been disappointing if it had not been for the displays around her. This is a good museum to wander round and has very good disabled access. Having watched all the items about her on Blue Peter, as a kid, I... More

just back from a visit to the Dockyard. The Mary Rose museum is very interesting way to find out about Tudor life on board ship. It's amazing that all the items on show have been preserved after all these years. Well laid out, with lots of information
