The new Stonehenge visitor centre is due to open on Wednesday December 18th 2013.
English Heritage have been unveiling details of the first exhibitions at the site of the Stone Circle.
It’s taken a number of years to get to this stage – and at a cost of £27 million, it’s the biggest capital project English Heritage have ever done.
300 prehistoric artefacts will be displayed in the exhibitions, and there’ll be a virtual experience where we can take a look at the stones from within the circle.
Today will also be the first time the visitor centre building itself, which is almost complete 1.5 kilometres away at Airman’s Cross, will be seen without its scaffolding.
