I was an early diver on the Mary Rose and this was a long awaited visit. I cannot speak highly enough of the exhibition. Words are not enough. You have to go and see it. You will take it all in. There is so much to see. Entry part of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard entry ticket available at reduced prices... More

We have followed the story of the Mary Rose from when her recovery from the sea started. It has been a long wait for the treatment of the timbers to be completed and the remains of the vessel to be righted. Any-one expecting to see the full remains of a boat will be disappointed, but the restoration of the items... More

The new Mary Rose display which opened in 2013 is very well organised. The displays are informative and you can actually see the remains of the vessel now they have stopped spraying it after 30 years.

The huge publicity given to the retrieval of the Mary Rose is well justified - but NOT as regards the ship itself !! Those expecting to see a complete ship will be bitterly disappointed - it is just one side propped up behind glass windows. BUT DO go if you want to see just what was on board. The amazing... More

Let's get the negatives out the way 1st... The walk to the actual Exhibition is long, we were tired after seeing other attractions, but not we're old enough to be in a buggy or electric wheelchair that they supply...something should be running that you could hop onto, a miniature train or something, there are enough tracks there that moved the...

The Mary Rose was a big ship and incredible how they have salvaged so much from it. The bonus of a visit to the museum is to see the artifacts, weapons, clothing, tools and remains that were so well preserved in the Solent for hundreds of years. The museum does a fantastic job of presenting all the exhibits as though... More
