The Beaney is an art museum and library situated in the heart of the historic city of Canterbury.
This fabulous facility provides state-of-the-art exhibition galleries, a brand new and extended library, excellent learning facilities and a varied programme of interactive events for all ages.
The building takes its name from its benefactor, Dr James George Beaney, who died in 1891 and left money in his will to the city of Canterbury. The city council had the Beaney Institute (as it was formerly known) designed and built using this funding along with some of its own resources. The architect was A.H.Campbell and the building was officially opened on 11 September 1899.
Charges may apply for some special events and exhibitions. See our website for full details.
The Best Lane entrance is step free (lift), it is well lit and has an automatic door.
