We want to make sure that everyone can enjoy the history of the Mary Rose. That’s why right from the outset we designed the museum to be accessible for everyone.
Our staff and volunteers are always on hand and happy to offer any help you need during your visit. We can also arrange a guided tour to suit individuals or groups. To find out more please call us on +44(0) 2392 812931.
The site and the museum itself are fully accessible by wheelchair, and the museum houses a wheelchair accessible toilet. Lifts are also available to move from floor to floor, and we have a number of wheelchairs available on site to ensure all areas are accessible.
The museum has a fully accessible toilet with adult changing facilities.
Information and guides are available in large print formats. We also offer sensory resources, including tactile plans and painting of the ship. Visitors are also welcome to handle certain artefacts, both historical objects and replicas.
There is an audio loop system in exhibition spaces. We also provide transcripts and subtitles for the audio visual content in most areas. All guide and assistance dogs are most welcome.
There are 15 disability parking bays in the Historic Dockyard car park which is approximately 400 yards from the main entrance/visitor centre.
