Set sail over the stormy seas of time and arrive in 1545 at The Mary Rose. It’s a one-of-a-kind museum with immersive exhibitions, audio-visual displays and even a skeleton dog called Hatch.
Get to know the crew of the Mary Rose in ‘The Many Faces of Tudor England’ exhibition. Find out what scientists have uncovered about their lives, looks and descendants, and come face to face with a reproduction of Henry - one of the most interesting crew members.
Lost in battle defending England from one of the largest invasion fleets this country has ever faced, The Mary Rose is a historic national treasure. Families can explore her remains by seeing, touching and even smelling items that were recovered from the seabed. Passing through the viewing galleries that stretch the full length of Henry VIII's vessel, allowing you to see where many of the thousands of objects were found, you can say hello to Hatch - the ship's dog who once, long ago, caught rats in the bowels of the boat.
Perhaps the best way to submerge yourself in Tudor life is by watching the audio-visual displays which bring the boat to life as the ‘crew’ go about their daily business. The final fantastic addition? The opportunity to hold a real piece of history: original timbers and rope recovered from the Mary Rose.
