Beaney House of Art and Knowledge

Canterbury, Kent, UK

Casson Mann redesigned Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in 2012 to re-present its diverse collections, which span ethnology, natural history, archaeology, decorative and fine art. Introducing the collections is a huge Cabinet of Curiosities – stuffed birds, Greek vases, regimental trophies, Siberian maps, shoes and muskets – filling the room with variety and interest. Central tables equipped with drawers, irresistible investigative tools, and learning games provide fun for visitors. The atmosphere is welcoming and family friendly and its open arms are succeeding: visitor figures increased by 190% after reopening.
