  • This is an absolute must for anyone interested in English history. Absolutely fascinating. OK it seems pricey but don't forget it is not government funded and you are supporting masters and PhD level research in what is a rare opportunity for 1500s history. The personal stories of the crew is fascinating and explains how the stories have been put together from the evidence. Try to see one of the great TV programmes on YouTube before you go to fully understand the uniqueness and importance of this find.

  • Well worth a visit. Museum and all areas very accessible for all physical abilities and ages. Exhibits well thought out, engaging, inspiring and thought provoking. I would allow 2-3 hours but it could be more or less depending on how much you spend at all the exhibits or if you skim view.... Your choice. There is no onsite parking but there is some near by but you then need to walk a fair way. There is a cafe as part of the museum or a bigger restaurant on site and a short walk away, it serves good food at what i think it's reasonable value.

  • We all enjoyed this visit. (All adults) The ship is so well presented, the costumed guides are most informative. There is too much to see in one visit, so many items found and beautifully preserved and presented. We had a year ticket purchased last year ( thanks Tesco) so got in without payment, but even though we would like to go back to see more we feel the now £16 charge over and above an annual pass is a real deterrent, not a case of affordability for us but a value for money issue. So if you do pay that make sure you stay and enjoy the full experience.

  • It can be quite expensive at £16, but it is not too dissimilar to any other museums in price. The artifacts and historical mock-up of how life was in the ship was interesting and some of the paintings were amazing but the star of the show is the Mary Rose, at least if you're a history buff. While half the ship wasted away with the passage of time, the other half sank into the seabed and was therefore protected and that's what you can see in the museum. Words or pictures (if I had any) do not do it justice and it is a must see if in the area. And with the ticket lasting the whole year you can see it a bit at a time if you get tired or are pressed for time or just to look at it a second time and possibly discover something new!

  • Saw it years ago whilst being sprayed. Revisited now and SO much better. Stunning projection of videos into hull, alternating with various lighting conditions. View from top level without glass intervening. Themed cabinets full of well explained articles. Highly recommended
