The Jordan Museum - Review

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

  • We stopped by on a whim because we were in the neighborhood, and I’m so glad we did! Small but nice exhibits downstairs. Be sure to go upstairs to check out the 1001 inventions. It’s a little hidden because you go into a little theatre and then from there you’re enter a min-science museum. Really nicely done - Our 7 year old had a blast!

  • One of the best places to visit if you're trying to know more about Jordan and it's civilizations through the years. Amazing staff, and the activities they conduct are awesome! A place where you can go with your friends or your family .

  • Detailed and innovative exhibits can be found here. You can understand the geographical situation that Jordan is facing and their smart solutions. BUT a bit overpriced, it costs 5JD per visitor even the main exhibition is under renovation and it is a small-scale exhibition. The other ongoing exhibition costs another 3JD though the area of exhibition seems even smaller.

  • Main exhibition closed. Meanwhile, Very nice exposition about inventions (water, communications, energy, food) in Jordan. Very surprising exposition on the second floor about the 1001 inventions. It might be a bit awkward, but you should not miss it ! A lot of fun and laughing.

  • Visited when most exhibitions were closed, but even that it was a great experience. Seeing the world's oldest sculptures and the only dead sea scrolls in metal was amazing. A must see museum!
