In addition to the museum, the Mary Rose Trust recently launched a 4D cinematic experience, narrated by Ross Kemp. Dive The Mary Rose 4D gives visitors the chance to witness the finding, excavating, and raising of the world’s most famous shipwreck.

Underdog has been tasked with evaluating the way in which the museum works with sponsors and developing the partnership strategy. In addition they will also lead the business development and drive conversations with potential brand partners.

Pippa Bostock, Director of Development, Engagement and Marketing said

“As the museum continues to develop its offering to visitors, we’re looking to do the same with the way we work with commercial sponsors. Our museum is inspired by the past but our sponsorship offering is building for the future. We’re looking forward to working with Underdog and speaking to brands who are keen to support the Mary Rose by entering a sponsorship that delivers great results.”
