Had some friends over from Oz and wanted to show them some local history, as part of this we spent the day roaming around the dockyard. got a cheap deal of amazon local. three children all under 11, and none of them got bored. amazing. even amuzed ourselves and learnt a bit. harbor cruise was good too.

Made a special trip to Portsmouth to visit the Mary Rose and it was well worth it. The ship is amazing to see (though I have to admit I hadn't realised it was only half of it they had raised). The displays of the objects found on the boat were really well presented, making a human story of the terrible... More

It makes no difference that only half of the ship is here, this is a world beating exhibition. It brings to life the experience of being aboard the Mary Rose, the people who served on her and died when she sank and it explains the sheer hard work which has gone into conserving the wreck and bringing it to the...

Last time I saw it, there was not much to see as it was still being preserved. What a transformation in 7 years. There is 3 decks. There is other findings from the conservation area where they found her. So much to see and read. A great place to visit

To think that what you are looking at laid at the bottom of the sea for so long. Will be going back next year once they take rest of partitioning away.

At first we didnt think the Mary Rose would be up to much with just a dry old section of ship. It turned out to be quite the opposite. It was great! Very well presented and great to see finds that had been on the sea bottom for 400 years with such good preservation. The museum displays were informative and... More

The Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth is a wonderful experience. So much love, hard work and effort has been made to save this beautiful old ship from disintegrating. Must visit the wonderful shop for trinkets and books.

New set up very user friendly and easy to access. Good presentation need a lot of time to assimilate everything. These people were far more sophisticated than they've been given credit for and were the early forebearers of our modern Navy.

When you go to Portsmouth Historic Harbour allow at least two hours for the Mary Rose. It is amazing!!! We thought it would only take half an hour or so at the most, but how wrong were we. There is more to the exhibit than just the remains of the ship to oggle at, there are hundreds and hundreds of... More
