The Mary Rose in 4D

The Mary Rose Museum is absolutely beautiful. It is well thought out, it’s incredibly simple to navigate with the main attraction positioned wonderfully in the centre of the building. In clear view as you stroll around the shipwreck you explore its treasure and history.

I was super intrigued when I saw a poster for the 4D dive experience. I have loved stories of its discovery and salvage since I was a kid. The attempts, the incredible effort it took to locate it and lift it safely. It is a really glorious story. 

The museum located in the beautiful Portsmouth Dockyard is worth a look even if you are just stood outside it. Its shape compliments its surroundings and spending some time by the sea in this historic spot is nothing short of splendid.

You are guided through the museum, around the wreck and up to the 4th floor where you watch a short introduction to the movie and then are momentarily immersed into The Mary Rose and its wonder.

The 4D excavation explains the story from the very start. It allows you to be the diver and see how this fragile ship was brought back to life. It was managed and protected by a group of marine biologists, archaeologists and scuba divers keen to preserve a really crucial bit of history. The human effort here, the motivation and drive to make this salvage happen was quite the feat.

Portsmouth is saturated with nautical history and there is so much there to see and learn about. It’s ocean community is vast and it is a really epic place to spend a day.
