The Mary Rose Museum - Review
Dedicated to the navy warship Mary Rose that was at her prime in 16th century, this museum showcases fascinating artifacts from the ship as well as the restored ship itself . The staff here is extremely friendly and happy to answer any of your queries. The museum tells in detail the story of Mary Rose and her journey and has preserved its original objects with much care. It also throws light on how sailors lived on board and the technology of that time. This museum tour could turn to be quite a revelation for your kids and in fact, for you too.

The Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth Reviews
I would say without a doubt this is the best museum I have ever visited. You are fully immersed in the experience - sound, smell, sight and touch. My 14 and 11 year old girls were enthralled. Brings to life not only the era and history but also the extraordinary story of how this ship was raised for beneath the sea bed. The attention to detail is amazing. 100% worth a visit.
It is a fascinating place. The remains are very impressive and the storyboards immerse you into it's history deeper than the mud that preserved the Mary Rose. One thing though; up until April 2018 the multi museum pass could include this museum. But because this attraction only received 9% of the multi pass income they have removed it from the scheme. That was preferable to demanding a larger slice of the pie. This means that it costs the customer particularly families a lot more to visit the M.R. as well as others.
Fantastic; an extremely well laid out exhibit. It's well worth giving yourself several hours to get round as there is so much to see. The whole dockyard area is fascinating; you'd need an entire day at the very least to see all of it. Buy your ticket online to save 20%!
Absolutely amazing. The whole presentation of this wonderful ship and artefacts is very well done and such a high standard. Thank you to the whole team for an amazing job. I felt as if we were really there when the ship was " alive". Just sad to hear that the team want to bring the rest of her up but have to raise funds! Funds should be made available now by H M Government!!! Well worth going. Excellent
Everything thing here amazes. The fact that so much of Henry VIII's flagship was raised from the bottom of the sea where it sank fighting the French. That such skill was used to preserve the ship having being sunk in silt for 450 years. That so many artifacts were found just as they had been used. That is was possible to reconstruct so much of what was found; even the faces of the sailors aboard and the ship's dog. That everything is displaying in such a beautiful purpose built designed building. That so many knowledgeable volunteers are on hand to explain anything the visitor might need. Even includes a retail experience shop and a small cafe with outside balcony where you can sit and look at Nelson's HMS Victory alongside as you continue to wonder and be amazed at your experience.
