our new museum

The Mary Rose visits Southsea Castle

The Mary Rose Museum is reopening its doors later this summer, but in May the crew will be taking over Southsea Castle for a bank holiday weekend of fun and frolics!


Southsea Castle was built in 1544, the year before the Mary Rose sank, and indeed was the place from which King Henry VIII saw his flagship disappear beneath the waves.


Our fun family activities include have-a-go archery, dressing up as a Tudor, artefact handling and even talks from the ‘crew’ about the life and times of the Mary Rose. Of course, all the usual Southsea Castle attractions will be open too!


The Mary Rose visits Southsea Castle on 29th-30th May 2016, 10-5pm. Admission is Free, but donations are appreciated. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
