Fodor's Expert Review The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge

Canterbury Museum/Gallery
The medieval Poor Priests' Hospital is the site of this quirky local museum, where exhibits provide an overview of the city's history and architecture from Roman times to World War II. It covers everything and everyone associated with the town, including the mysterious death of the 16th-century writer Christopher Marlowe, and the British children's book and TV characters Rupert the Bear and Bagpuss. One recent acquisition is a beautiful gold dragon pendant, made in Kent during the Anglo-Saxon era (410–1066).
