The Mary Rose Museum - Portsmouth Historic Dockyard - The Main Decks

The Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

 

A brand new state-of-the-art home for the remains of Henry VIII's flagship, and the extraordinary collection of artefacts recovered from the sea after 400 years.

 

 

The Mary Rose Museum is an historical museum designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre and Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will. The museum is located at Historical Dockyards in Portsmouth in the United Kingdom run by the Mary Rose Trust. The museum is dedicated to the 16th century Tudor navy warship Mary Rose as well as the historical context in which she was active. The museum opened in 1984 and displays artefacts from the ship as well as the ship itself in a dedicated ship hall while it has been undergoing conservation. In September 2009 the ship hall was closed to allow the start of construction of a new museum that was opened at the end of May 2013.[1] The complete conservation of the Mary Rose will be finished in 2016, when she will be fully integrated with the new museum environment.

 

 

The Main Decks

 

Was a bit dark down here, and some shots (of cannons) didn't come out well (processing).

 

Preferred to look at the wooden remains of the decks out of the windows.
