Information and guides are available in large print formats. We also offer sensory resources, including tactile plans and painting of the ship. Visitors are also welcome to handle certain artefacts, both historical objects and replicas.
The light levels in the museum are kept low for conservation purposes, so if you have any issues please speak to a member of our team and they will help you with your journey.
Special "Relaxed Opening" mornings are held every month, check our events pages for more details.
The Mary Rose Museum is located 500m (550 yds.) from the entrance to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. If you are unable to walk up the site, we can come and pick you up from the entrance gate in our buggy, provided by Motorculture Ltd, with a grant from the Boshier-Hinton Foundation. The buggy runs most days and visitors can request the use of the buggy when they arrive at our Visitor Centre. Booking in advance is not necessary.
The Historic Dockyard site and the museum itself are fully accessible by wheelchair, and the museum houses a wheelchair accessible toilet.
Lifts are available to move along the visitor route.
We have a number of wheelchairs available on site to ensure all areas are accessible.
There are fifteen disabled spaces available in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard car park, located in Admiralty Road approximately 400 metres from the dockyard entrance.
Unfortunately there is no on-site parking for the Mary Rose museum.
The museum has a fully accessible toilet with adult changing facilities, including a hoist and adjustable table.
