A new experience about the historic Mary Rose, a warship at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, has opened to the public.

Developed in partnership with the National Museum of the Royal Navy and the Mary Rose Trust, the exhibition tells the story of the historic ship, through its sinking in the Battle of the Solent in 1545 to its recovery in 1982.

Included in the exhibition is an interactive gallery and multimedia display, featuring the likes of Henry VIII, as well as access to another historic ship, the HMS Victory.

The attraction is narrated by award-winning actor Dame Judi Dench, who described the experience as a “great introduction to those fateful final moments overseen by King Henry VIII”.

Dominic Jones, chief executive of the Mary Rose, speaking ahead of the launch, described the exhibition as an “exciting addition to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.”

“[It] will give visitors a way to understand how the Mary Rose’s story as a warship ended, and how ours as a museum began”.

Dominic Tweddle, director-general for the National Museum of the Royal Navy, added: “After the successful launch of the new HMS Victory: The Nation’s Flagship display earlier this year, we’re excited for visitors to go back another 200 years and explore the story of another great ship from the dockyard with this new interactive exhibit by our partners at the Mary Rose Museum”.
