You do yourself a big disservice if you visit Amman and do not learn more about the Jordanian culture. This location is a quick primer to better understand the people and where they come from. Unless you are fortunate enough to meet and be patiently taught by a Bedouin about the lifestyle of the Jordanian people 100 years ago this... More

The museum building is a large modern building near 'downtown' Ras al-‘Ayn area of Amman'. When you arrive you see old railway wagons from the Hijaz Railway and a group of dolmens set in a garden. There are excellent exhibits illustrating the material culture and history of Jordan. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Neolithic figures and the displays about the... More

I expected much more from this museum as the building looks quite recent. Only the ground floor is open and I got the feeling this museum is still being under construction. Entree fee is 5 JOD and is not included in the Jordan Pass.

Look, I should have expected the scrolls - Jordan is on the Dead Sea, for goodness sake - but there I was, ambling around the final corner of the museum when BAM! There's a dark room with parts of the scrolls inside. Incredible. This is a good museum. Rather new with lots of interesting information about the region and the... More

This museum should be a must see on any trip to Amman. An astounding collection of artefacts, some dating back 7000 years. Unmissable!

The Museum is a very intersting place to learn something about the different culture. The displays are very good organized and the text very good to understand. It is a must see to learn about all the different culture in jordan. It is suitable for different ages.
