It's not just objects recovered from the Mary Rose in our collection...

Those who have been to the Mary Rose Museum will know how impactful and emotive the collection of artefacts recovered from the ship can be!  Over the last 40 years, alongside these original Tudor artefacts that form the Trust’s Primary Collection, there has been another treasure-trove of material being collected and cared for...

This Secondary Collection includes all sorts of weird and wonderful items acquired outside of the landmark excavations – material like paintings, models, replicas, important documents and objects can all be found within it.

With 2022 being the 40th Anniversary of the raising, we wanted to take the opportunity to share a few examples from the Secondary Collection and ask – Do you have something associated with the Mary Rose story that you would consider sharing, loaning, or even gifting to the Mary Rose Trust?

Photos, documents, objects or even personal memories associated with the Mary Rose would all be of interest.  If you wanted to get in touch, please send an e-mail to collections@maryrose.org with a brief description of the object(s) (and ideally a photograph) and tell us about it – we would love to hear from you!
