Museo Sans 500


View the Museo Sans 500 font spec­i­men sheet.

museo sans exampleA sans serif font by Jos Buiv­enga ( With its per­fectly round o and almost cir­cu­lar bowls, Museo Sans has some geo­met­ric ele­ments. On the other hand, its double-decker g and soft foot ter­mi­nal on the l feel human­ist. I cat­e­go­rize it as a geo­met­ric sans serif font, because when text set in Museo Sans 500 is com­pared to a range of sans serif fonts it feels more geo­met­ric than human­ist. Museo Sans 500 has a slightly smaller x-height than Verdana.

The Museo Sans fam­ily has 10 fonts (var­i­ous styles, weights). All are avail­able for web licens­ing at In the font spec­i­men sheet, I show only Museo Sans 500 and Museo Sans 500 italic, which are free fonts. I com­bine them with Museo 700, a bold font from a dif­fer­ent fam­ily, but a fam­ily with a sim­i­lar struc­ture. The full fam­ily is also avail­able via typekit.
