The famous Mary Rose will undergo a £35m investment to be re-housed in a new purpose-built museum, in what has been described as one of the most ambitious and significant heritage projects in recent years.
Described as 'Britain's Pompeii', the Mary Rose was Henry VIII master warship and was sank in 1547. School tours to the ship will cease from this week as it goes under wraps for 3 years before being unveiled in a new purpose-built modernist museum. The new £35m museum will house the Mary Rose next to the Victory, Nelson's flagship.
The new museum will allow pupils on future school trips to interact with features such as a glass deck, cannons in their original setting and more than 1000 artifacts from the wreckage.
