Mary Kinoulty, Head of Learning at the Mary Rose Museum said “I am so proud of the team. They richly deserve this prestigious award. It is wonderful that their exceptional contribution to learning at the Mary Rose has been recognised in this way.”


In addition to this, on Saturday night the Museum team were awarded the Customer Service Award at the Portsmouth News Retail and Leisure Awards.
