The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge is an Art Gallery, Library and Visitor Information Centre situated in the heart of historic Canterbury.
The building takes its name from its benefactor, Dr James George Beaney, a Canterbury-born man who studied medicine. Dr Beaney left money in his will to the city of Canterbury to build an ‘Institute for Working Men’. His patronage was fundamental in building the Beaney Institute: a new home for the Canterbury Royal Museum and Free Library, now known as The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.
