With archaeological artifacts from various sites from across the country this 1951 museum is now the largest in the country. The museum in its current form was overseen by Queen Rania. Covering about 10,000 square meters, the collections of the museum are presented in chronological order, and very elegantly tell the story of Jordan’s epic history. They're also lecture halls and a library. Sometimes exhibitions are held Outdoors. The main highlights of the collection are:
- Million-and-a-half year old fossils
- 'Ain Ghazal lime plaster statues - Some of the oldest statues yet surviving drafted by the human hand
- Copper Scroll from the Dead Sea Scrolls
- A copy of Mesha Stele - An important part of Biblical history

The Jordan Museum, Amman Reviews - Write a Review
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
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.
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 .
