Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

About

In 1545, The Mary Rose sank outside Portsmouth Harbour defending England from invasion. 

In 1982, The Mary Rose made a spectacular return to the surface.

Now, experience The Mary Rose as never before.

Explore the remains of Henry VIII’s favourite ship, recovered from the seabed in one of the most challenging archaeological excavations of all time. From the large bronze and iron guns to personal items like wooden bowls, tiny dice and nit combs, The Mary Rose recreates life on-board a 16th century warship with an authenticity no other attraction can provide. Whether you’re interested in the lives of the officers, the ordinary sailors, or even the ship’s dog, you don’t just get a window into their lives, The Mary Rose opens a door to the world of 1545.

Nowhere else can the lives of the men who worked and lived on board a Tudor warship be more truly experienced. Discover that history is only a heartbeat away at the Mary Rose.
