There are expositions dedicated to the art of fine writing in some of the largest fine arts museums of the world, but the World Calligraphy Museum 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:
You also get to see works of contemporary calligraphy: for instance, the Handwritten Constitution of the Russian Federation.
The World Calligraphy Museum 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:
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.
The museum is a member of the Association of Private Museums of Russia
