An amazing museum ... apart from the entry process

We visited the museum soon after it first opened and it was fantastic then but since the recent changes it is even more amazing. The only negative is the entry process. We pre booked tickets on line so didn't think we needed to follow the signs saying "Mary Rose tickets" so had to be redirected by the main Historic Dockyard staff. We then had to queue behind two groups of people at the ticket desk to then give details I had already completed on line. The rest of the museum is brilliantly thought out so the entry process stood out as poor.

A wonderful & informative day out for all the family.

While we couldn’t fault the whole experience of the dockyard, we were rather frustrated by the entry system. We had pre booked our tickets before going, & were confused as to why we then had to queue up again to get another ticket to go in. It was very busy & very hot so was not a good start to the day. It would be much better if there was a separate queue for people who had pre booked to speed things up a bit. Other than that we really couldn’t fault the facilities on offer. We particularly enjoyed the self guided tour on the Victory.

A stunning exhibition. Much more than expected. Hope to visit again.

So much more than expected. When I saw the wreck raised at the time I did wonder if the effort and expense was justified. It is more than that, the exhibition and the extraordinary visual accompaniments were breathtaking. It was such view into Tudor times, not merely the history of the ship itself, so much information gained from the artefacts themselves and especially the forensic analysis of the recovered ship's personnel. Again breathtaking. Thank you for such a world-beating museum.

The highlight of my trip, it was absolutely brilliant

The day was exceeded my expectations, Steve Liddell was inspirational and made the day very special. He could not have looked after me any better than he did, and he was like a walking encyclopaedia. It was by far the best trip of my holiday and would highly recommend this tour.

An excellent historical display. Top notch work.

Great place to visit and absorb some history. Quite amazing just what has been done and how detailed everything is. Only area that needs some attention is the online ticket recognition. My on phone voucher was not acceptable, but the website encourages this system.
