  • Classy and respectful staff and treated him very valuable artifacts but very short dam hours from 10 am to 2 pm and I didn't like the use of effects for national advertising and promotion rather than described as a legacy for all humanity and all civilizations, peoples and Nations that lived in the area parking lots Available and easy access to the Museum and enter senior age of Jordanians above sixty years service altogether beautiful and stately building Museum but in my opinion you should not use it for national advertising effects is a goal and because the Museum

  • The Jordan Museum is a very modern museum in Amman, located in a district close to downtown and some other important touristic attractions as Roman Amphitheatre. The architecture of the entire complex...  more »
  • Open and varied designs. Many things will come back again on a tour of Jordan. However, pity that not the entire Jordan story. Time history practically do not occur.

  • This is a wonderful museum. It was a treat to see incredible historical artifacts that originally came from this region (as opposed to seeing similar things in the British Museum, etc.). I spent approximately 2 hours in the museum and read about 70% of the written information, overall. The entrance to the main courtyard is on the west side of the complex. The ticket office is in this courtyard, but it is separate from the main entrance. The entry price is 1 JOD. At the time of writing (2 Aug. 2017), the cafeteria was not open/hadn't been fully built yet - so bring your own snacks, if necessary. Additionally, the second floor of the museum is still under construction. It's an exquisite building and a well-curated museum that is well worth visiting if you are in Amman.
  • The Museum has closed its permanent exhibition for renovations leaving only a tiny portion still available to view (including the copper Dead Sea scroll). However, no information is posted about this at the ticket stand and they're continuing to charge the full entry fee. Definitely disappointing for the price they're charging.
  • Overall wonderful experience , well laid out and well sign posted with all information on exhibits in both Arabic an English
  • Very interesting historic museum I really recommend you designate a whole day for this museum and bring the kids and let them be educated and have a good time this museum contains a lot of art and sculptures made of stone as well as poetry dating back to ancient times there also nearby restaurants .
  • You can add your name in the museum and it will appear your name in three languages as you can see and you can print it how cool is that.

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.
