Museum of Turkish Calligraphy Art

The Museum of Turkish Calligraphy Art (Turkish: Türk Vakıf Hat Sanatları Müzesi) is a museum located in Beyazıt Square in Fatih district of Istanbul, Turkey. Constructed between 1506–08, the building formerly served as the medrese of Bayezid II Complex which was built within the order of Sultan Bayezid II, son of Mehmed the Conqueror. Its collection consists of 3121[1] pieces mainly reflecting Islamic calligraphic art.


The museum was first opened as the "Writing Museum" at the medrese of Yavuz Selim Complex in 1968. In 1984, it was moved to its present location and renamed "Museum of Turkish Calligraphy Art".[2]
