THE first visitors to the historic dockyard’s new Mary Rose Museum are through the doors.
Today is the opening day of the museum, where members of the public can explore the ship and her artefacts in a new setting for the first time.
People arrived early to wait for the gates to open and get a first look at the visitor attraction, which opened at 10am.
One of them was Charlotte Smith, 54, of Henderson Road in Eastney.
She said: ‘I wanted to make sure I got the chance to see the museum because it looks fantastic.
‘I can’t wait to see what’s inside.’
