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.

We had both visited the Mary Rose many years ago in the early 90s, so were very impressed with the more recent museum. Amazing views of the ship from the viewing platforms on different levels, and interesting to see where various items eg guns, purser’s...More

Hello, Thank you for your comments. The airlocks are a necessary part of the preservation of the ship, as humidity levels have to be maintained in the ship hall and, to a lesser extent, the museum. We have tried to make these areas as spacious...More
