The Sharjah Calligraphy Museum was opened in 2002 in the building of the house of Hamad Al Midfaa in the Sharjah Heritage Area (Heart of Sharjah). Enter this museum and you embark on a fascinating journey of discovery across centuries of Arabian heritage in the form of beautifully written script.

Created by local artists and well-known international calligraphers, significant works of art from the Arab world demonstrate the complexity of this vibrant art form and its historical and Islamic foundations. Arabic calligraphy seen on canvas, wood, paper and ceramics will inspire you with its positive and living energy.
