Mary Rose museum opens in Portsmouth at cost of £35m

A £35m purpose-built museum for Henry VIII's flagship, the Mary Rose, will be officially opened later in Portsmouth.

The 16th Century hull will once again be on display at the Historic Dockyard museum - yards from where the Tudor warship was built 500 years ago.

The new museum finally reunites the Mary Rose with many thousands of the 19,000 artefacts found with it.

Robert Hall reports.
