The exhibition will be the first to explain Stonehenge to visitors, with 250 prehistoric objects - many unseen before - on loan from various collections.
One highlight is the most advanced forensic reconstruction of an early Neolithic man's face, based on a 5,500-year-old skeleton buried in a long barrow 1.5 miles from Stonehenge.
Two rare 14th century manuscripts, including some of the earliest drawings of the monument, Roman coins and jewellery are also on display
The new facilities are housed in a pair of single-storey "pods", sitting beneath an undulating canopy that mimics the rolling plains nearby.
Further work to decommission the existing facilities, built in 1968, and returning the car park to grass will start in the New Year.
There is a 360-degree Stand in the Stones experience, using state-of-the-art laser scans, to allow visitors to experience summer and winter solstices.
A major exhibition will open for visitors tomorrow at the historic Stonehenge site.
ITV News got an exclusive look around the new visitor centre which includes important objects never seen before and a 360-degree experience that will allow visitors to 'stand in the stones'.
The much-anticipated new Stonehenge exhibition will open tomorrow, giving visitors a special exhibition surrounding the story of the historical monuments.
The transformation comes as part of an English Heritage £27 million project to enhance the visitor experience of the iconic site.
A 360-degree virtual experience will allow visitors to 'stand in the stones' where they can be transported back in time with the stones.
Dr Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage, said:
"At last, visitors to Stonehenge will be able to get a sense of the people who built this monument, of their lives, their deaths and their ceremonies. Visitors will learn the astonishing history of the stones and will see objects, many never seen before, that will bring the stones to life."
