Social Media and the Mary Rose


The Mary Rose has been expanding its reach with the use of Social Media. As well as our popular Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ve recently spread out to Pinterest and Instagram!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pinterest and Instagram, they’re both online photo sharing sites, but they serve different purposes.

Pinterest lets you share images from around the web, so we can share what we’ve recently added both to this website as well as our online shop. Our Emma Bridgewater designed items were particularly popular on there!

Instagram is more for “spur-of-the-moment” photos, where our team sees something interesting, and has to share it. It can be an artefact from the museum, something in our shop or just something that seemed a little out of the ordinary. It also lets us post lots of pictures without filling up your Facebook newsfeed!

If you have any pictures that you’ve taken in and around our museum and want to share them with us, please feel free to post them on our Facebook wall, or tag us in your instagram photos (@MaryRoseMuseum).
