The museum preserves the king's vast collection of over 70 20th-century vehicles, including some of the first royal motor cars used in the Middle East. Presenting Jordanian history through the lens of its vehicles, the gallery displays Cadillacs, Buicks, Harley-Davidsons, and replicas of some of the world's first car models.

  • For an automobile lover like me its an amazing place. So many cars and bikes from now and yester years under one roof. Its king Abdullah's private collection, established in 2003 as a tribute to his father Late King Hussein. It houses a rare collection of Jordan's vehicles ranging from Hussein bin Ali's cars that came to Amman in 1916 to modern sports cars and also the ones used in world war. But what took my heart away were those awesome bikes ranging from Harley Davidson to Honda, BMW to Lamborghini, they were all so amazing that I almost swooned. King Hussein used his motorbike only on private occasions.
  • An amazing collection of perfectly preserved and cared for cars!!!! Motorcycles, cars, jeeps, everything!!!! In a beautiful setting, absolutely perfect!!! Everyone will love it
  • Its a decent detour, you can see the arsenal of cars owned by the royal family, through weddings, celebrations, funerals, military, movies and races.
  • Very nice collection of vintage royal cars. Nicely presented with many historic references. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Amman.
  • A must visit Museum for all classic cars enthusiast. The late King Hussein collection of awesome cars and motorcycles.
