Mary Rose Museum

One of the UK’s most famous historic sites, the Mary Rose Museum is located in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard alongside HMS Warrior and HMS Victory. Since the ship was raised in 1982, it has been housed in a temporary structure within the museum. Using Heritage Lottery Funding, the museum was redeveloped to give visitors an even more incredible experience.

The new-look museum offers visitors stunning panoramic views of the ship through floor-to-ceiling glazing, experiencing the feeling of being closer to the historic landmark than ever before. Works were undertaken in an extremely sensitive environment – not only for the protection of the ship, but also as the site is located within a military dockyard.
