  • It is small but lively
  • It needs some govermental care
  • Actually is the museum to be found next to Aqaba castle, but the archeological site is further to the north on the sea side opposite to the Aqaba Gulf Hotel. The site is still under excavation but it is allowed to enter and the sign tell you the story of the lost city of Ayla. This was the name of the town before Aqaba. This old town disapeared under water and is now being recovered. It hurts to realize that all the hotels and other new buildings around this area, are build on top of this ancient town.
  • beautiful but small town but very nice all the same
  • Dear friends and viewers this museum is very beautiful and also very peaceful place the Aqaba Museum is located in the old city of Aqaba, it lies adjacent to the historic fort of Aqaba. The museum houses Bronze Age artifacts that were discovered in the Tall Hujayrat al-Ghuzlan archaeological site near Aqaba, dating back to 4000 BC.
