About The Royal Automobile Museum, Amman

Commissioned by King Abdullah in 2003, this Museum showcases about 70 gorgeous cars, mostly relating to the history of Jordan, but also some other curiosities. Most of the collection belonged to King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan, who ruled the country for 46 years, and was a complete gearhead. There are also motorcycles. Each vehicle comes with a detailed description of it history. They are all beautifully shined, pleasingly lit, and are absolutely drool worthy. The museum also has one of the rovers that was used in the movie The Martian (the nearby Wadi Rum area was used to film some scenes for the movie). It's not something you expect to find in this city but it nevertheless one of the most beloved attractions.

  • This place was incredible, even if your not a car fanatic this is a must see place in Amman. It's got tons of cars, audio tours, it's got affordable, a gift shop and a theater to explain the history of the cars and the museum. It's not just a museum of vintage cars it also has futuristic and one of a kind vehicles, like ones from movies. If you want to spend a relaxing time and enjoy the history of jordan through cars, this is the place to go, and I hope you'll make lots of fun memories like I did.

  • Wonderful place. I loved the cars, the stories, even the display details and the décor. Some cars are brith taking. Whether the cars are original or an exact copy of the real car, there's amazing stories behind each. You will enjoy it even if your not a car obsessed, if you are then it's the perfect place to visit on Jordan.

  • Though a little off the way but a must see in Amman. It has a great collection of restored old cars including half a dozen rolls royce cars. The museum also has exotics like the Ferrari f40 and f50 and the Tron bike.

  • Very good museum exhibiting a royal selection of vehicles linked to the history of the nation. As an added bonus, the original and only diesel powered rover used in the 2015 film, The Martian, is parked just outside. The film was filmed in Wadi Rum, Jordan.

  • Great memories. Great cars. Great place to visit.
