About the Mary Rose Trust
Who are we?
The Mary Rose Trust is the body responsible for conserving and preserving the Mary Rose for this and future generations.
The Mary Rose Trust is a limited charitable trust, formed in 1979, and is the body responsible for conserving and preserving the Mary Rose for this and future generations.
The President of the Mary Rose Trust is HRH The Prince of Wales, who has been involved with the Mary Rose ever since his first dive on the wreck back in 1974. Prince Charles has followed the excavation, conservation and exhibition of artefacts with a very close interest, and has played an active role in our objective of reuniting the Mary Rose with her incredible collection of artefacts.
Originally housed in Boathouse No. 5, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the Mary Rose Museum is now based in a purpose built museum next to HMS Victory, where the ship has been reunited with her artefacts for the first time since their excavation.
Mary Rose Archaeological Services Ltd (MRAS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Mary Rose Trust. The purpose of the company is to make available to the archaeological community the facilities and experience gained by the Trust.
