As an independent, locally run registered charity responsible for our own fundraising, sponsorship and management, The Mary Rose relies on your ticket fee to help us maintain our unique collection for future generations.
Travel back in time with one of our expert guides, who will take you through the museum and introduce you to the world of Henry VIII's favourite warship!
There’s so much to see and enjoy at The Mary Rose that you’ll probably want to take some time to unwind and relax.
What special events are taking place at the Mary Rose during your visit?
We want to make sure that everyone can enjoy the The Mary Rose. That’s why right from the outset we designed the museum to be accessible to everyone.
The Mary Rose is fully wheelchair accessible, and a buggy service is available between the dockyard entrance and the museum.

We encourage all visitors to take photos, and share them with us via social media.
However, flash photography is not permitted, as this can be harmful to the artefacts, as well as disturbing other visitors. Most modern cameras have a low light setting, so you won’t need to use flash.
Commercial or professional photography is not permitted without written permission from the Mary Rose Trust.
Light levels are kept low inside the museum to help preserve our collection for the future, as UV and visible light provide energy that can cause materials to alter their chemical state, damaging them forever.
If you have any concerns, please speak to a member of our team upon arrival.
