Hear the stories of the people who dived on the ship, from the Tudor divers of 1545 to the 20th century search by Alexander McKee and his team of volunteers. Then enter our new state-of-the-art 4D theatre and join the divers as they discover the first timbers, excavate the 34m-long shipwreck, recover her treasures and return the Mary Rose to the surface for the first time in 437 years, all brought to life with a combination of archive footage and CGI, as well as multi-sensory features including sounds, smells, bubbles, wind and movement.

Dive the Mary Rose 4D tells the stories of all those who were instrumental in bringing the Mary Rose to the surface of The Solent, acting as a lasting legacy for the hundreds of individuals involved in the world’s largest underwater excavation and recovery.
