Mary Rose Museum Set to Open on May 31st!

According to a new news article, the "secrets of the Tudor warship will finally be revealed on 31 May 2013 - at the very same dockyard where it was built over 500 years ago."

The opening marks 30 years since the hull was raised from where it sunk 437 years ago. New exhibitions, such as "Life Onboard," "Meet a Carpenter" and "Realities of Life" (using DNA research), will be featured.

The Mary rose was Henry VIII's great flagship. Its loss must have been devastating for the fiery monarch. Now, people can finally see it and its fascinating artifacts again!

Be sure to read more about it here.

You can also donate to the Mary Rose Fund here as well as learn more about the ship through a virtual exhibit.

  1. Saw the amazing BBC special and it was great with the Mary Rose in full 3D as she should look. She looks amazing. The thousands of objects and of course the skeleton and reconstruction. Cannot wait to go down later in the year.
