Speaking of secrets, see the raising of the Mary Rose, told in immersive 4D, with Dive the Mary Rose 4D. Learn how she was able to stay hidden for hundreds of years at the bottom of the Solent and see her awe-inspiring return to the surface, told in stunning detail.
Or maybe you want to know what it’s like for the serving men and women of the Royal Navy who make the underwater their home? Experience what life would have been like as a submariner onboard HMS Alliance, one of the few remaining submarines from World War Two, and see our fantastic collection at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
