#1 of 28 in Museums in Jordan
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.

  • A very cool place that contains a number of huge antique cars and a suitable environment to maintain the quality of the cars shown.  more »
  • Much bigger and more artefacts than I expected there to be, interesting but can get around whole museum in about 30-45 minutes. Bit out of the way from downtown as well.  more »
  • even the king's childhood motorcycle is displayed. it's a great look into the royal family's vehicles - vehicles an ordinary person would never see in the streets  more »

  • Opportunity to see a lot of rare cars and motorbikes and to learn more about history of Royal Jordan family. Definitely worth to visit. Outside the museum you can see the original space vehicle used in movie The Martian with Matt Damon.
  • An interesting collection of cars to see here. Some really nice classics and some rare models combined. The museum is not too big making this visit a good early afternoon thingy before dinner for example.
  • This is a huge and wonderful collection of cars, bikes and other things that mostly belonged to late King Hussein of Jordan and other royal family. There are a few loaned things as well like the NASA rover and Tron light-cycle. Everything on display is described in detail and the history is also played out using photos, posters and even audio/video.
  • It's very good.. however it feels like it could have had more cars.. And there are replicas in the museum which I didn't appreciate. I love originals. It was very clean very well light. Over all a very nice experience. Highly recommend the experience at least once a lifetime.
  • It is a beautiful royal car show which is located in Amman, Jordan. It has the cars of the royal palaces.
