Abandoned school becomes Richard III grave visitor center

Leicester, England mayor Peter Soulsby was on hand recently to celebrate the opening of a UKĀ£4 million visitor center near the site of the grave of Richard III, discovered in 2012 in a city car park. The center is housed in an abandoned school building.

Visitors to the center will be able to view the actual grave and a 3D printed skeleton of the monarch, along with exhibits about the discovery and identification of the remains. Another floor focuses on the king's life. According to center representatives, the grave is "preserved in a quiet, respectful setting... fitting for the last resting place of a slain warrior and anointed monarch."
