  • Great museum to wander around for an hour or so, free entry and a free exhibition on Thomas becket. Exhibits vary from nature, military and collections made by a local explorer.  more »
  • We spent around an hour looking around this little museum which was interesting. Various exhibits & paintings well worth a quick look.  more »
  • The Beaney is a gem of a local museum, if you take some time you'll find there are a number of high quality artifacts on display. The collection is eclectic which means something for everyone. As a house of art and knowledge you'll also find art on display downstairs, typically work with a degree of connection to Canterbury. An excellent cafe and a library are on the same site.
  • Wonderful hub of creativity and history, a museum and art space, a library with city archives and IT facilities for members. Visitor reception with helpful staff who can advise on the city and the library. Classes are held here by Adult education. Nice cafe and shop for postcards and Beaney gifts.
