A great idea but much of the history about Richard III in the 1st room was given in large blocks of writing on boards around the room. I class myself as very literate but can only think how some may really struggle with this as even I lost focus and the will to carry on reading. There was also little continuity and the various kings and history seemed to jump back and forth which became confusing. The room where there was some digital screen shows from different character perspectives was interesting, but as it was an open room to the entrance hall and the 1st room mentioned above, it was difficult to hear what the characters were saying as all we could hear was loud chatter from staff and other visitors. I was so looking forward to visiting, ever since visiting Richard''s coffin in the cathedral, but I have to say I was very disappointed and unfortunately would not recommend family or friends to visit at this time.

Really enjoyed the visit, but we are an older couple. There is quite a lot of information to read so not sure how long children would enjoy the visit. It i very interesting though and the exhibits very good.

An excellent visit. Great exhibition, well laid out in attractive and spacious surroundings. The story of Riii clearly told, with interactive explanations. I, my husband and 9 year old grandson really enjoyed it and learned a lot. Staff friendly and helpful.
