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
A nice museum which is well kept and air conditioned. Much of the museum is closed for renovation and has been for some time. It is a quick visit with a few exhibits on Jordanian history and current events. The Dead Sea scrolls are a highlight, as is some of the traditional sculpture, but this is not a large museum and you will be done quickly.
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!
Great museum, 1001 invention museum there is a very nice place to take your kids to, although the employees need to smile a little bit more to the kids but that's ok. They provide a good amount of information to the kids so it's a fun trip for the whole family and a full of knowledge and useful informations. I recommend this for the weekend or on Thursdays.
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 .
Overall it is a very informative museum that was very thorough with their discussions of history. Feel that it can have more information. The 1001 inventions exhibit is also interesting
