You need a good couple of hours here. My daughter loves the Tudors so was right up her street. I'm disabled and need a lot of assistance, the staff were very helpful and couldn't help me enough. A very well planned and laid out experience....More

I was wary when the double doors opened and closed, but of course this is necessary to keep the correct atmosphere. Enter into three floors of Tudor life! You really feel like you are on board. Staff dressed as ship-mates and videos of life on...More

I have not seen the Mary Rose since the 1980's. There has been an incredible amount of work happened, investigating and understanding the artifacts. I feel as though understand a lot about what was happening on a boat from almost 500 years ago. The video...More

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I was told you can see the Mary Rose but it's behind glass, etc.and you can't board it (as it's too old). I wasn't expecting much to be honest. I was so wrong! It is a wonderful...More

Wow, this blew me away, the last time I had seen the Mary Rose was in the mid 80s so I did not know what to expect. This far exceeded my expectations, the layout of the exhibits in relation to the ship is so well...More

I went to visit the Mary Rose museum because I am organising a summer trip for a group of disabled people. There is good access information on their website, but I needed to see it firsthand. The Historic Royal Dockyard is a big site and...More

Can you see anything at all (free) whilst 'Mary Rose is closed?. Also, does anyone know how much of the dockyard you can walk around without having to pay? Never been to Portsmouth before and on a budget. Thanks. Helen.

Thanks Simon. That's really helpful and means I can give my son good news about the Mary Rose - he's obsessed. I'm sure we'll enjoy our holiday and will make plans to go back when there's more to see, Cheers, Helen
Do you have a specific date for when the museum will be open - I notice you mentioned late summer? Many thanks.
