Chief executive of the Mary Rose Trust, John Lippiett said the layout of the new Mary Rose Museum was designed in the shape of a ship, with many artefacts laid out in a mirror image allowing visitors to experience how it would have felt to be onboard.
The whole of the museum is designed by the curvature of the ship.
The concept is to put the objects back into the ship.
We have built the mirror image half of the ship.
This is a state-of-the-art museum which is at a very top level of any museum I know.
A new £27 million museum housing the wreck of the Mary Rose has opened in Portsmouth in the same place where the ship was built in 1510.
The latest chapter in the history of Henry VIII's flagship, built more than 500 years ago, will see the opening of the new Mary Rose Museum.
