Mary Rose Museum to Open This Month

History lovers will be thrilled to hear that the Mary Rose Museum is set to open its doors to the public in Portsmouth on May 31st, providing an excellent opportunity for those on weekend breaks in the area to soak up some local history.

The famous Tudor ship sank on July 19th 1545 in the in the Battle of Solent, and the new museum stands on the site of the dockyard where the iconic boat was built.

As well as containing the hull of the Mary Rose itself, the new museum - which is shaped like a Tudor vessel - will also house some 19,000 other artefacts that have either been rescued from the ship or were used in its construction.

Commenting on the opening, museum ambassador Dan Snow said: "This tremendous new museum housing together for the first time the hull of the ship and its many treasured artefacts will give us a sense of what life was like on board a Tudor ship like never before, helping to preserve the history of the Mary Rose for generations to come."
