What our visitors say on TripAdvisor TripAdvisor Logo

An amazing and moving experience

If you have even a passing interest in Tudor history and Henry VIII, this is simply unmissable. The sight of The Mary Rose from the viewing gallery is both amazing and tragic. The thousands of items recovered really illustrate the lives of the men (and dog!) on board, their service, and the terrible fate most of them met. A brilliantly presented museum.
