Patrons play a pivotal role in safeguarding the Chester Beatty’s remarkable collection for future audiences to enjoy.

Patrons at the Chester Beatty

The Patrons, together with the Heritage Council, directly support the Conservation Internship which provides a talented young person with the exciting opportunity to work with our experienced Conservation team. This enables us to conserve many more works in the collection than would otherwise be possible. Patrons have behind the scenes access to the collection and the opportunity to see objects come alive in the conservation lab. Patrons have priority access to events, trips and holidays, invitations to exclusive behind the scenes events and exhibition openings and updates from the Conservation Department.
