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.

Wonderful cars renovated in an astonishing way. Most of the cars and motorcycles are shown in their environment. Great place, one of the most beautiful automobiles museum ever seen. Only one complain, The entrance it's difficult to be found.
Opportunity to see a lot of rare cars and motorbikes and to learn more about history of Royal Jordan family. Definitely worth to visit. Outside the museum you can see the original space vehicle used in movie The Martian with Matt Damon.
An interesting collection of cars to see here. Some really nice classics and some rare models combined. The museum is not too big making this visit a good early afternoon thingy before dinner for example.
This is a huge and wonderful collection of cars, bikes and other things that mostly belonged to late King Hussein of Jordan and other royal family. There are a few loaned things as well like the NASA rover and Tron light-cycle. Everything on display is described in detail and the history is also played out using photos, posters and even audio/video.
It's very good.. however it feels like it could have had more cars.. And there are replicas in the museum which I didn't appreciate. I love originals. It was very clean very well light. Over all a very nice experience. Highly recommend the experience at least once a lifetime.
