The Chester Beatty is a vibrant National Cultural Institution with holdings of manuscripts, rare books, and other treasures from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. This material once formed the private library of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty (1875 – 1968), a successful American mining engineer, collector and philanthropist. It is the pre-eminent Irish museum promoting the appreciation and understanding of world cultures where a visitor will find permanent and temporary displays, an intercultural learning programme and a broad variety of public activities for all ages and backgrounds.
