Come and see The Mary Rose at our award-winning museum, located just 400 metres from the main entrance to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
After years of planning, fundraising and building, our new museum opened to the public on the 31st May 2013. Packed with fascinating artefacts and plenty to enjoy, the museum is a wonderful day out for all the family.
Once inside the museum, it takes between 90 to 120 minutes to go round, but you can take as long as you like. Please be aware that during school holidays we will be very busy, so expect some queues.
Due to the delicate nature of the artefacts, light levels are kept low. While we do allow photography in the museum, Flash photography is not permitted.
