RICK JACKSON: How I led Pompey to European glory

Have your say

Well, I’m afraid I am feeling a little bit smug.

I got the chace to have a guided tour of the new Mary Rose Museum, which opens to the public next Friday.

I had to sign my life away to say I wouldn’t reveal any of the details of this marvellous new attraction before the opening. But here’s what I can say:

I left the museum after one-and-a-half hours feeling like I had barely scratched its surface, and immediately wanted to go back in for a second visit.

It felt like I’d only seen about five of the 10,000 artefacts on display, though I know it was a lot more.

I was astounded by its quality, astonished by its accessibility, and struck dumb with pride. Well done everyone connected with it.
