  • 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.
  • Good calligraphy and Arabic culture.
