Mary Rose Warship, Portsmouth UK

The Mary Rose was the specially built warship of Henry VIII.  Built in the early 1500s, it was in use over 30 years until sunk off Portsmouth in the Battle of the Solent.

A panoramic painting and commentary describe the final battle.

Numerous artifacts from the ship are on display including shoes, tools, coins, and guns.

The Rose Symbol

The substantial remains of the ship are on display, which is augmented by an audiovisual presentation of battle action linked to sailors in different parts of the ship.

Travel notes

I consider it one of the best attractions in the Historic Dockyards and worth at least half the price of the multi-attraction ticket.

There are portable seats to use throughout the museum.
The gift shop has some interesting and reasonably priced gifts.

There's also a restaurant.
