Specialty Museum Museum
Reflecting on the life and times of the late King Hussein, Royal Automobile Museum houses his personal collection of cars and motorcycles, along with numerous historical vehicles. 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. As of 2015, the museum also houses a model of the Mars rover, gifted to them by the makers of the film "The Martian," filmed largely in Jordan.

  • This place shows very interesting collection of cars driven by the kings of Jordan, it is a must place to see by car lovers.
  • Amazing collection of vehicles with clear details about each one. The motorbike Lawrence of Arabia rode on is there.
  • Walking in the museum gives you an idea about the cars and bikes used in the Royal Palace. Exploring that era is extremely fun specially for car enthusiasts
  • 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
