  • Since days in the desert are almost always hot, this museum offers a respite from the heat, and so much more. The history of the area is described in stages, to help you understand why Petra was there...  more »
  • You can visit this museum with the ticket that you pay to enter to the city of Petra. Is bastanet explanatory very well organized and with much information. Perhaps out of the enclosure is too tired to make the visit, but believe me that is worth.

  • 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.

  • 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.
