Resurrect naval history at The Mary Rose Museum
The Mary Rose Museum is one of many fascinating historical exhibitions in Portsmouth’s historic dockyard. At one time, this warship was the pride of Henry VIII’s fleet. After serving for 34 years, it was sunk in 1547, and raised in 1982. Today, the wreckage (now in the last phases of its conservation) and its artefacts are available for the public to view, offering a unique and fascinating day out for the whole family.
