The world’s only museum of calligraphy

There are expositions dedicated to the art of fine writing in some of the largest fine arts museums of the world,  but the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy is the only museum dedicated entirely to this art form.

In the museum you find yourself in a wondrous world consisting of beautiful symbols, perfect lines and absolute harmony. Every variety of calligraphy creates its own specific mood:

  • Arabic ornamental script, the basis of Muslim calligraphy;
  • European calligraphy, tracing its roots to antiquity;
  • The ancient art of Chinese calligraphy;
  • The laconic Japanese calligraphy
  • Slavic writing close to the heart of every Russian person.

You also get to see works of contemporary calligraphy: for instance, the Handwritten Constitution of the Russian Federation. 

The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy is not just a museum. It is an international culture and educational centre with unique exhibitions, excursions and workshops held at the venue.

There are high-quality museum tours for children and adults. The Museum also provides custom services:

  • Audiovisual equipment for media demonstrations and presentations;
  • Exclusive tours complying with any unusual demands: e.g., individual or night-time tours;
  • A mobile museum. We can deliver selected artworks or thematic collections from our vast exposition to your location.

Everyone can master calligraphic writing

Many people wish they had refined firm writing. It is easier for a modern person to type a text than to write it accurately by hand.

This is especially true for school children who often have no idea how beautiful and engaging calligraphy writing can be.

That’s why we invite everyone to the National School of Calligraphy based at the Museum.

There are calligraphy and lettering courses for children and adults prepared by leading calligraphy masters, aimed at all levels of preparation. 

Mastering the art of calligraphy will not only help you develop the skill of writing beautiful letters and words; you will discover a new way of relaxing, submerging into your private world and managing the stresses of the everyday world.
