It might not be normal to add a library to a list of museums, but we still find it correct to consider the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin a museum. The library was established around 1950 to house the collection of Mr. Beatty. Today the library is open to the public and has been so since year 2000. It is located inside the Dublin Castle.
In the Chester Beatty Library you can see manuscripts, miniature paintings, prints, drawings, rare books and some decorative arts from the Islamic, East Asian and Western Collections available in the library. The library is often used by scholars studying the Old and the New Testament and it has a great collection of Eastern artefacts.
