What our visitors say on TripAdvisor TripAdvisor Logo

Without hesitation- 5 stars

If you haven’t been - go. This is an extremely well presented and informative exhibition. The actual wreck is amazing, but the way that this is brought to life with technology and exhibits of materials found with the wreck is outstanding. We watched the raising of the Mary Rose on TV many years ago , and visited the exhibition when it was first opened. I couldn’t believe how much the staging had been changed, and how much better it now is ( and I was pretty impressed before)

European Museum of the Year

Citation by the European Museum of the Year 2018 judging panel

 "In its final state, the Mary Rose Museum is an exceptional achievement  - a museum that has finally reached its last stage of its progressive evolution which started 35 years ago (1982). It is close to perfection in fields as different as the presentation of historical research, underwater archeology, conservation techniques, experimental archeology, architecture, scenography and virtual reality. The ship is now revealed totally, freed from all the technical drying equipment, with various light effects and film screenings on or above the ship itself.

‘Ship, Objects and People’ are the three elements now shaped into in a fascinating history and an impressive display. The emphasis given to the daily activities of the crew on board and the projections over the decks of the original ship's structure strengthen the human dimension of the Mary Rose."
