Mary Rose Museum
Mary Rose Trust
Dry Dock, Portsmouth
Henry VIII’s warship, the Mary Rose, is currently undergoing conservation within the heart of Portsmouth’s historic Royal Naval Dockyard in Dry Dock No. 3, a Scheduled Ancient Monument built in 1803. Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will are the interior architects working alongside the Mary Rose Trust and their exhibition designers to design the museum ancillary spaces, museum galleries, and exhibition spaces including the design of the world’s largest exhibition case, the context gallery. This is a mirror image of the remaining hull of the Mary Rose. The context gallery will be re-populated with more than 4,000 real objects archaeologically repositioned as they were on July 19, 1545, when the ship sank, set out at each deck level within a 3 storey environmentally conditioned exhibition glass case. Wilkinson Eyre Architects led the design team responsible for the building which surrounds the ship.
