Sharjah Calligraphy Museum is one part of (joint ticket) history trip in Sharjah. Calligraphy work are comparatively new. But an interesting extra was open doors to an Emirati artist Najat Makki's exhibition. In pics some of her works, too.

I wasn't impressed because I'm not a fan of calligraphy. However, if you have an interest in calligraphy and Arabic, you should definitely visit this place.

Tiny but tastefully arranged, beautiful examples of Arabic calligraphy in different scripts. As usual in Sharjah museums, nice and welcoming staff.

Beautiful place in where you can learn and appreciate calligraphy as an expression and art. The galleries sum up a nice and outstanding work for local and visitor artist. Don't hesitate to ask for a tour, the guides are really well prepared.

While the museum is small in general as area but it offers a lot of information about Arabic Calligraphy. Journey with this pure Islamic art from the past till now, also the museum offers free workshops and host some activity of the Sharjah Islamic Art festival, entrance fee is very cheap and free for kids as most of the cultural places in Sharjah, all family members will enjoy the visit and also the walk around the area.

Great Calligraphy (Arabic) Museum and Surrounding Awesome in Heritage Area The Museum itself is small but contains a lot of information about Arabic Calligraphy. The tools and the method used for Calligraphy were also on display. There are also free workshops every week on Arabic Calligraphy so if it interests you you could check with the Museum Authorities and plan your trip accordingly. There is also a book on the Arabic Calligraphy which is on display and the title is currently available for Free. Overall a good place to visit for Calligraphy lover and the surrounding is a heritage area and the place and sight is awesome and a must visit if you are in Sharjah. It is very close to the Shopping area / Rolla Park.
