The artifacts from the wreck are well displayed with a great deal of information but the surviving side of the ship is still being dried out and will not be exposed properly for 2 more years. To see and appreciate all of this treasure would take many visits so buy an annual ticket if you are keen.

One of the best museums we have ever been to. The exhibition cases were as good as the Mary Rose itself. The staff were very helpful and the text in the cases were easy to read and very informative.

Once you manage to figure out the strange layout of the museum (and the staff are always ready to provide guidance), it is truly fascinating, and would appeal to young and old.

Very interesting. I remember watching the boat being raised to the surface when I was younger. To be able to see it for myself enabled me to really appreciate how delicate the whole structure was.

This is a must place to visit, however we found 1 day was not enough to get to see all exhibits and activities. We found a bargain ticket on 'Travel Zoo' and the ticket allows you to revisit for 12 months free. Phil-

Was nice to look at this for really what you could see as its so Very Very Dark which is understandable owing to how old this piece of British History is. But being frank you need to use your Imagination to Vision of what this Ship did once look like.

Fabulous. Spent almost 4 hours in the exhibition. Very compelling - had to read everything. Everything beautifully presented and meaningful.

The Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth Dockyard is a magical place, to Actually be able to see part of the ship preserved in an upright position, and so many artifacts that came up with the ship when it was lifted from the seabed. A great chunk of history right in front of you.
