Visit to the galleries of the Mary Rose Museum

After thirty years of conservation work, the stunning new museum, designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre and Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will, reunites the Mary Rose, the famous Tudor warship which sank on 19th July 1545, with the many thousands of artefacts raised from the wreck. These objects, ranging from wooden bowls, leather shoes and musical instruments to longbows and heavy guns are displayed in galleries running the length of the ship, each at a level corresponding to a deck level, providing an insight into the original appearance of the decks.
