  • The museum offers a great representation of artworks from Jordanian artists and artists from developing countries. 
  • Difficult to get taxi (the driver didn't know the road and had to stop several times to get directions) I finally landed in his spacious rooms well equipped with works by contemporary artists Jordanians and other Islamic cultural Nations and developing countries. Unfortunately I didn't find catalogs for sale (as in other museums in the city) but I discovered artists and works quite remarkable. On the third floor is a library that you can freely consult
