Support the Mary Rose and become part of something unique
The Trust has an ongoing commitment to the wreck site where the Mary Rose lay and the continuing conservation of the hull and the thousands of artefacts recovered with her. There are many ways you can supports us – from becoming a member or Flag Officer to making a donation or volunteering. With your help, we can make sure this glorious ship can be preserved and displayed in an innovative museum for generations to come.
After years of planning, fundraising and building, the Mary Rose opened to the public in 2013. It closed for eight months at the end of 2015 for the second phase of the project. Since July 2016, the museum provides stunning panoramic views of the ship and visitors have been able to breathe the same air as the Mary Rose.
This is yet another chapter in her long story. The Mary Rose’s story will continue with plans already being discussed for the rudder, stem and other parts of the ship’s structure to be reinstated.
Please support us and be part of a remarkable piece of history.
