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
