Although the Chester Beatty does not charge for entry to the museum or to any of its exhibitions, we must increasingly rely on the generosity of our 335,000 annual visitors for essential funds to develop our activities. Your support enables us to deliver innovative programmes and events, present world-class exhibitions, conduct new research, and conserve the collections for future generations to enjoy.
