Overview

The Mary Rose 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. Please note that The Mary Rose is not included in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard 11 Attraction Ticket. We currently offer a 10% discount to holders of a valid 11 Attraction Ticket upon its presentation at either our Visitor Centre at the main dockyard entrance (Victory Gate), or at our museum. Tickets purchased before 1st April 2018 will still be accepted until their expiration date.

Great museum - lots of artefacts very well presented including the boat itself and the journey around the museum has been very well thought out. We got the train to Portsmouth harbour and it is a short walk from there.

Amazing to see how well preserved the ship and the artefacts are. The ship is well presented with viewing areas at different levels. We were there for 3 hours ... but could have stayed longer. A long awaited, enjoyable afternoon.

This is an amazing museum with the remains of the Mary Rose which sank and was raised from the bottom of the sea after over 400 years. The artifacts on display are original...no reproductions. It was all amazing!! If you're in Portsmouth, don't miss it.

Fantastic insight into history at this exhibition, almost feels like your stepping back in time and seeing what life must have been like at sea all them years ago. Very informative staff and exhibits top class.

Great place to visit - especially as now all open to public instead of behind glass - all artifacts in one place well worth a visit
