Mary Rose Museum
Client: Mary Rose Trust
Since opening, Portsmouth's Mary Rose warship has drawn record numbers of visitors keen to see this magnificent 16th century warship rendered fully visible for the first time since it was raised from the seabed in 1982. We told the story of its crew, its construction and dramatic resurrection in a series of compelling displays.
Only partially visible for decades, the ship's timbers first had to be stabilized, sealed and then air-dried, before it could be finally revealed in the world's largest showcase, comprising a mix of glazed and open galleries over three levels. The final phase of the interpretation was a captivating AV projection onto the ship itself, showing vignettes of life on board in peacetime and at war, while a separate presentation tells the story of boat's construction, sinking and resurrection.
