New £27m Mary Rose Museum open 31 May 2013: The famous Tudor warship to finally reveal all her secrets 500 years after she sank
- The ship that captured the world’s imagination when she was raised from the seabed in 1982 now has a museum built around her, reuniting the ship with its contents and crew.
- Museum is a giant ‘air lock’ and time capsule. Visitors enter a controlled environment to experience a unique journey through the ship and Tudor life.
- The most comprehensive collection of Tudor artefacts in the world will be showcased - from personal belongings such as wooden eating bowls, leather shoes, musical instruments and even nit combs complete with 500-year-old lice through to longbows and two tonne guns.
- For the first time crew members are being brought to life through forensic science: visitors can come face to face with a carpenter, cook and archer and even ‘Hatch’ the ship’s dog.
- The new Mary Rose Museum will form the centrepiece to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home to The Royal Navy, one of the UK’s major visitor destinations and only 90 minutes from London.
