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. The Museum exposition presents unique samples of the lettering arts, the world masterpieces created by recognized calligraphy masters. The exhibiting items include refined specimens of Slavonic and European lettering, the elegant works of the Jewish and Arabian calligraphy schools, strict forms of classical Japanese calligraphy, the examples of ancient Chinese writing, telling the history of its origination and demonstrating new aspects of visual arts, as well as Russian and foreign books on art of calligraphy, the rare hand-written editions, writing utensils of the past and the present.

Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy combines painting and graphics, and solves the problem of culture and leisure matching; it answers the question of where to go in Moscow and what art galleries and museums to visit.

The museum exposition will excite both children and adults and make a fine addition to school and university curriculum. As for the students of art schools and colleges, it will be a demonstrative example for a sequence of lectures and will reveal the essence of visual art and painting techniques of the artists described in books on art.
