The Mary Rose Museum is currently undergoing renovation work, and so the main body of the Museum will not be accessible between November 30th 2015 and Late Summer 2016. A temporary exhibition will be held in the Museum foyer, featuring a small number of Mary Rose artefacts, as well as replicas, interpreted by our award-winning team of staff and volunteers. There will also be a short film, narrated by Dan Snow, telling the history of the Mary Rose, as well as what will be coming after Phase 2. The café and shop will remain open as usual

I can remember that eventful day in 1982 when the world watched in awe as the remains of Mary Rose were lifted from the seabed.

The new layout is FANTASTIC. It's so explicit and turns what could be a pretty dull and "dead" visit into a very memorable experience. To do it justice, it really needs more than one visit. I shall be returning!

Well worth the wait from the old museum to the new. Just to see the old Mary Rose in all her glory over spilt decks with full viewing around. Great

We visited the Mary Rose Museum, as part of a day visit to Portsmouth Dockyard, also taking a harbour boat trip. Both experiences were absolutely fascinating. The Victory was not open at the time

We've never been so mesmerized by an exhibit. Two teenager and adults could have spend the day walking this exhibit. The Mary Rose is suspended in the middle (still being dried out) but you walk around each layer of the ship - on the outside are the artifacts found and you can just look over to the ship to see...
