about Chester Beatty Library
The Chester Beatty library has one of the world's great collections of manuscripts and related art from across the world with a particular emphasis on the great cultures and religions of the world.
It is a truly remarkable museum, a hidden gem in the heart of the city and a place worth repeated revisits. It is also a great place to have a meal or coffee and baklava.
