Tickets go on sale next Monday, 8 April, for the Mary Rose Museum, which opens its doors on 31 May 2013.
The new £27m facility is a giant ‘air lock’ and time capsule showcasing 19,000 Tudor artifacts, including as wooden eating bowls, leather shoes, musical instruments and even nit combs complete with 500-year-old lice through to longbows and two-tonne guns.
The Mary Rose Museum, which opens 30 years after the ship was raised from the seabed and 437 years after she sank, is situated at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – the very same dockyard where the warship was built more than 500 years ago.
The Mary Rose is the only sixteenth-century warship on display anywhere in the world.
