Housed inside a modern architectural interpretation of a ship's hull, The Mary Rose Museum holds the remains of the 1545 vessel the Mary Rose, and offers exhibits on England's rich maritime history. Glass cases display artifacts that survived several hundred years in the sea. You can handle authentic pieces and interact with displays. The main attraction is the reconstructed remains of the ship itself, viewable on three levels via a panoramic elevator. After viewing the Mary Rose, enjoy a snack at the on-site cafe, where the name of the ship may appear atop your cappuccino froth.

What a fantastic place to visit fantastic how they have preserved the ship very clever. As you go round you feel that your there back in the day. All the staff are cheerful and helpful. Fantastic day out. I've been three times now and will hopefully go again you notice something different every time. Well worth the money.
This is a very well put together museum. It is fascinating to see both the artifacts saved and preserved, as well as the story behind the mammoth task of saving the Mary Rose. I would budget for about two hours to visit, as you want to have time to appreciate all the items on display. I highly recommend a visit to the museum.
