    This museum is small and weathered but interesting for a quick look around. It has artifacts, detailed and beautifully crafted jewelry and costumes of the past that provide a bit of history and detail...  more »

    Certainly not the Amman will remember for its museums, and even this small exhibition of Folklore Museum manages to convince completely. Traditional clothing, textiles and musical instruments exposed may also have their interest, but it's the setting that leaves much perplexed. Anyway you won't lose much time and easily visit after seeing the Roman Theatre. Open from 9 to 17 and we haven't paid ticket, so I think it is free.

    Small museum, small fee to enter. Friendly staff. Tip : tourists, please wear conservatively, no shorts or singlets. Ladies, do not show your legs. A long skirt or pario is fine.

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.
