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. Check the website for the museum's opening days and hours.

Where to stay in Amman

Amman accommodations sit at all points on the spectrum, and you'd expect nothing less from a capital as diverse and eclectic as this. The more budget-friendly options, in the form of simple hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, lie predominantly in the downtown area, with the narrow, maze-like streets housing countless accommodations around each corner and over each hill. If you're looking for something a little more luxurious and with calmer surroundings, then the business districts to the northeast represent the best places to look, with high-rise chain hotels jostling for position along the main shopping streets and next to scenic parks and plazas.
