  • If you wish to see the traditional culture and dresses that was worn during olden era, this place is a must visit. The way each item is depicted and preserved with lighting effects etc gives the audience a natural feeling and tempt to touch and feel if this is real or craft-work. Amazing place!
  • Dear friends and viewers kindly visit that the place because The Jordan Museum is located in the dynamic new downtown area of Ras al-‘Ayn. Presenting the history and cultural heritage of Jordan in a series of beautifully designed galleries. The exhibition space encompasses much of The Jordan Museum’s 10,000 square meter building and covers 1.5 million years of Jordanian history and archaeology.
  • It should be clear that is more an archeological museum covering the old history. The museum is done nicely, actually on some foreign money. It has two floor but second floor is closed. Very dissapointing is the territory on the back of museum: dirty, with garbage, stinky and used as a tolitett.
  • Well laid out, extremely Courteous staff, and the coup de grace, the dead sea scrolls! Worth the 5JD for this alone.
  • Central location with private parking and security service. Great variety of the region's historic antiquities. Clean and well preserved and presented. Reasonable entry fees (for Jordanians at least). Nice outer space. Small area / short tour (relatively). Very few interactive activities. Very few children-oriented activities. No souvenir shop. No coffee/snacks kiosk.
