Support us

There are various ways in which you can support us.

Our unique Tudor collection needs continued care and we need to be able to cover the costs associated with this (e.g. staff wages, energy bills). We receive no core Government funding and rely solely on the generosity of the public. Please support our jewel of Tudor heritage today.

Mary Rose Information Group
The Mary Rose Information Group

Our aim is to have speakers all around the country so we can share the history of the ship with as many communities as possible. We are always on the lookout for new speakers. Would you be interested in volunteering?

If you are, please fill out this form or if you have a query about becoming a speaker, send us an email to
