  • If you like Islamic calligraphy then this is a don't miss place. All around the museum there are smaller shops where very expensive are also for sale. Great place.  more »
  • I do breathtaking places such ... It's like a visit to the temple. Were in all three halls, beauty and wealth everywhere, but is especially impressed with the third, where are the paintings with quotes from the Koran. Our guide with such pride was telling about these writings, listened and listened. The truth is I can't say anything about local rasskazchikah, were with her from Shang Tours. There is a service for learning the finer points of writing, her husband participated in these courses, the work is taken away at the memory. Immediately I say that I need to discuss this in advance with the employees of the Museum, ask your guide, us Murat (Guide) warned immediately. Advise everyone take the time and visit the Museum.

  • This museum is located inside the old Saharja, very interesting from a cultural point of view to observe the development and the changes over time of Arabic calligraphy

  • Great concept but needs attention to realize it's potential. Currently feels like a neglected project.
  • 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.
  • An excellent institute!
  • This place is worth to visit. (museum ).
  • 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.
