  • Before or after visiting the sites of Petra you can see interesting archaeological pieces, but also numerous photos to the technology of excavation and conservation in this museum. Boards with information about the history give additional understanding of the travel guide.

  • This Museum (whose entry is included in the value of the main access to the resort of Petra ticket) provides varied and complete information on the capital of the Nabataeans. Unfortunately, I visited Petra on a day and at the end was very tired to devote to this place time that it deserves. However, I went through it quickly and I could see clear informative references mostly complex and the civilization that lived there. For those who are in Wadi Musa two or more days, I recommend it.

  • A small exhibition that can be bypassed for a couple of minutes. In the Museum you can take brochures, maps, and if there is a necessity-order Guide. The cost, which includes guided tour 50 dinar.

  • Petra got an amazing scenery. It's so beautiful here. I've been to many places in my life. Here is one of my best trips. You got to pay a visit in your lifetime.
  • Very amazing. The walk isn't too bad to the main treasury, half of it is in the shade in between the canyons. A lot of men try to rip you off with horse, camel, and donkey rides so use at your own discretion. If you walk past the treasury toward the monastery it gets significantly dirtier and more full of animal feces and there will be no shade but there are still pretty views to be seen.
  • A must visit place before you die. It deserves every second spent in there because the entire city is something different. Pros: Unique city styling as it was all craved into the rocky mountains. A place full of mystery and magnificence that makes you wonder who and how the people loved and built all of this. Cons: It lacks proper interest from the government, poor organization too. I believe the place has still many parts undiscovered and buried under the sand, you can see that clearly in some areas. Tips; Avoid buying from the Bedouin that you see inside the city, extremely expensive. Try looking around for cheaper prices and try negotiating. Better avoid visiting in the summer as it gets extremely hot with strong sun, you can visit during spring and autumn.
  • Interesting historical place to visit. Lots of walking. Lots of locals offering rides on horses and wagons unfortunately gets annoying because they get upset when they are rejected and you get some verbal abuse.
  • Amazing place. One of most beautiful places in the area. This is a must see sight that worth coming to Jordan for.
