The Mary Rose Museum – King Henry VIII’s Favourite Warship, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

Mary Rose
Thursday 12 July (Booking 17 May)
The Mary Rose Museum reopened in 2016, the final stage of a £39 million project. The hull timbers, raised from the seabed in 1982, have been sprayed with water and chemicals for 30 years and then air-dried. Now the ductwork has been removed to fully reveal the ship. 
The Mary Rose story is about people – the 500 men who worked, ate, relaxed, fought and died on board. Projectors show you images of the wealthy officers on the upper deck and common sailors in the dark of the lower decks. 
If you are interested, we will book you a talk and hands on experience of the artifacts for an extra £10.00 (1 hour). Alternatively, go on a free Harbour Tour (45 minutes) or visit other sites in the Historic Dockyard.
