our new museum

Mary Rose Museum To Close 30th November 2015

As we finalise our plans for the next phase of work, we can confirm that the Mary Rose will be taken off view from 30th November


If you are planning a visit to the Mary Rose Museum between 30th November 2015 and Summer 2016, please be aware that it will be entering a period of partial closure in order for the next chapter in her long and remarkable history to commence. Phase 2 of the Mary Rose Museum build will improve the visitor experience by providing uninterrupted views of the ship from the walkways as well as from the end galleries at all three levels.


During this period the main body of the museum will be closed off, with the hull and the majority of artefacts will not be on public display.  However, the Entrance pavilion, Learning Centre, Café and Shop will remain open and there will be a small display for visitors, including a new 10 minute film on the project.


Please keep an eye on our website for updates: www.maryrose.org


Please Note

During this period, we will still be able to welcome educational groups for workshops in the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Learning Centre.  A range of outreach options will be available for schools and groups.  We will also be able to host private parties, conferences and events in our Wardroom and Admiral’s Gallery.


The rest of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard will remain open for the duration of the Phase 2 works.
