I was working in the naval dockyard when the Mary Rose was lifted and saw lots of the relics laid out in a large warehouse. It was fantastic to see what Portsmouth have done to build this wonderful display and museum.

I followed the diving on the wreck in the 70's as well as the recovery. The museum is wonderful with loads of recovered relics. All the exhibits are fantastic... well done to all concerned! Not to be missed.

We have not visited this museum since 1988 when they were still spraying water on the hull.The new museum consists of 3 floors, representing the 3 decks of the ship. On one side of each floor is the hull. On the other the artifacts they discovered in the corresponding position. There are some interactive screen for young and old. To... More

What a fantastic museum, well presented with plenty of visual information. The other museums could learn from the team behind The Mary Rose Museum

I was glued to my TV screen when Margaret Rule oversaw the raising of the Mary Rose from the bottom of the solent. Some years later I visited it in its old home and was awed by the huge number of artefacts they had found, but the old bones of the ship were shrouded in mist to preserve the timber.... More

The recently refurbished Mary Rose Museum is remarkable. I recognised one of the official guides as a friend, (albeit strangely dressed in Tudor attire.) He delivered an entertaining, eloquent and instructive account of the Battle of the Solent alongside a huge panoramic picture of the event. Do it, and ask for Barry! OK, £28.00 for an all-attraction ticket for the... More

This is well worth a visit. You actually see the ship through glass panels on different levels. It's amazing how they managed to raise it without it falling apart when you see it.

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
