Calligraphy lesson and walk around the garden
Sep 2019
We were driven here with our Exoticca tour, straight from the bullet train we took from Beijing, so this was out first glimpse of XiAn. We came almost before the closing, so were rushed a little and our guide Sumana had to beg the security guide to let us take some photos by the Pagoda. We were bitten by mosquitos in the gardens.

Calligraphy Lesson
Oct 2019
We came here as part of our tour and had a calligraphy lesson. Very interesting. Afterwards you can have your name done on a scroll of your choice but you have to pay for it.

Loved the history and artistry!

Just beautiful, and if you are a lover of Chinese calligraphy - do NOT miss this one! It shows some artist's progression during their career and some valuable input on how art and calligraphy joined. One of my highlights of Xian!

Relaxing time learning the basics
Jun 2019 • Couples
we went to the calligraphy museum as party of out tour, it was a great couple of hours and relaxing, the lady trying to teach us the basics was very patient and the whole group had a fun time, with varing levels of success, at the end you can buy a sample with your name on before you wander around the gardens, which are nice and cool.
W got to learn a bit of history as well as some more chinese language which was relpful during the rest of our tour.
All in all an entertaining couple of hours.

Ok - interesting as a side trip

This is cool to go see if you have some spare time, or if you are interested in calligraphy. It is a good add on to a trip, but I would not say if you missed it you are going to be missing out too much.

I enjoyed it, am glad I went, and am glad it was on my itinerary but since I didn’t speak or read Chinese it may have been a bit lost on me.

CALLIGRAPHY - LESSON
Nov 2018 • Friends
We actually went inside this museum and a teacher taught us how to write our name using Calligraphy - it was quite amusing, on finishing she announced that we can all have our name done by a master and it was for free. So we all lined up - as ours was not the best writing you would frame - but his was.

This was a bit of fun.The good lady running it was full of humour and a history lesson. She described the how with the Chinese writing,and asked us to follow her lesson.Mine is on our wall.
