Relaxed Opening at the Mary Rose
  • The Mary Rose
    Main Road
    PO1 3PY
Higher lighting levels on select days throughout the year.

The environment within the Mary Rose is designed to create a stunning atmosphere and display, as well as helping protect the delicate collection of artefacts within the gallery showcases. However, we understand that visitors with a visual impairment or those with other medical and physical conditions, such as autism or dementia, can find our lighting levels, as well as the sound effects, to be a challenge.


Every month we will be holding Relaxed Opening mornings, where from 10am-12 noon the lights in the museum will be at a higher level, and sound effects will be turned down. As always our wonderful team of volunteers and staff will be on hand to guide you through the experience.


At this higher lighting level, some visual displays may not be so effective, so guests wishing to enjoy the full immersive experience and displays would be advised to visit us after 12 noon on these specific days.
