Not to be missed for the stunning medieval oak-beamed roofs of the Poor Priests Hospital in which it is housed, Canterbury Heritage Museum tells the story of this unique city and its people in fascinating modern displays. Collections relating to the history of Canterbury were moved to new displays here from the Beaney in 1987. Further displays, including the Rupert Bear Museum, were added in 2003, when the museum was renamed the Museum of Canterbury, reverting to Canterbury Heritage Museum in 2011. A selection of paintings from the Beaney is on display at Canterbury Heritage Museum while work is underway to restore and expand the Beaney, scheduled to reopen in 2012.
