Wilkinson Eyre’s Mary Rose Museum to open next month

The Wilkinson Eyre and Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will-designed £27 million Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard will open next month (31 May)

The museum has completed 30 years after the Tudor ship’s wreckage was famously raised from the sea in October 1982.

The 4,495m2 project – featuring Henry VIII’s warship alongside 19,000 objects raised from the wreck – however missed its original opening date planned to coincided with the 500th anniversary of the boat’s first voyage in 2011.

Wilkinson Eyre with interior fit-out architects Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will and Land Design Studio won a competition for the prestigious project in 2005, defeating rival bids from Austin Smith: Lord, Higgins Gardner & Partners and a joint bid by Wilford/Schupp/Dyson.
