The Mary Rose Trust receives no revenue funding from government – neither national nor local. As with most heritage organisations we earn our living as a visitor attraction. But to cover all our annual costs, maintain the ship, collection and Museum, and develop new educational, community and interpretation projects we need to look beyond our daily visitors.
We are hugely grateful to the grantmakers and generous patrons and donors who support the Mary Rose. Your grants and donations ensure we can protect the Mary Rose – now and in the future.
