FANS of the Mary Rose can have a sneak-peek at how its new museum will look in a preview ‘flythrough’ film.

The film has been sponsored by construction group Warings and produced by the ID Group with help from lead architects Wilkinson Eyre and internal architects Pringle Brandon, plus exhibition designers Land Design Studio.

It shows key aspects of the new museum, expected to open at the end of next year, and also gives a preview through to the project’s completion in 2016.

The video gives insights into how the Mary Rose will be displayed and how the personal stories of the crew will be highlighted as the collection of 19,000 artefacts is reunited with the ship for the first time since her raising in 1982.

New museum galleries will show life on the decks moments before she sank.

Philippe Jouy, Warings’ managing director, said: ‘The museum will represent the very best in 21st century architecture and construction, providing a beautiful and secure environment for the finest collection of 16th century artefacts in the world.’

The existing Mary Rose Museum at the Historic Dockyards in Portsmouth remains open during the construction with more than 1,000 of the artefacts recovered from the site.
