Owner description: The Mary Rose Museum is home to the Mary Rose and the thousands of artefacts that were recovered from the Solent. Built between 1509 and 1511, The Mary Rose was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favourite of King Henry VIII. After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology. After a 34 year conservation project, the Mary Rose is now fully on display within her purpose-built museum.

“History Freak ?”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

If you love to learn about Tudor history and Henry VIII then this is the place for you ! Amazing to think that all this "stuff" was just a stone's throw from the beach and how on earth it has survived 500 years is nothing short of a miracle with all the ship movements. Imagine Henry on Southsea Castle standing there watching the pride of his fleet sink ignominiously into the Solent with all her crew ! A really good place to visit.

“Mary Rose????”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Advertising for the Mary Rose must stress the fact that the Mary Rose is not open and will not be open until some, yet to be determined, future date. Very disappointing to be told after arrival in Portsmouth that the visit to the Mary Rose was not possible.
Fortunately, other attractions including HMS Victory and HMS Warrior offer some alternatives.

Unfortunately the Mary Rose was not available to tour when I visited! Although there was still a few bits to see, it was disappointing
