Bring learning out of the classroom and into Leicester’s brand new King Richard III Visitor Centre!
The Visitor Centre stands on the site of the medieval friary of the Grey Friars where the king’s remains were buried over 500 years ago.
The exhibition gives visitors a chance to learn more about the King’s life and death – and to understand the huge events that led to his hasty burial and eventual rediscovery. It reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told and features the first-ever genome sequencing of ancient DNA. The exhibition culminates at the exact place where Richard’s remains were buried over 500 years ago, now transformed into a glass-floored contemplative space for visitors
Our Learning Programme provides a range of options for schools and educational organisations planning a visit to the centre.
