Nice museum but opening hour is a bit tricky. So, plan your visit here wisely. There's a exhibition in the building next to it during June showing a mini version of Amman city.

Great quality and interesting museum, descriptions in English and not too big to get around, you can spend 60 to 90 minutes and see all the exhibits.

Architecturally stunning museum which is peaceful inside. Gives you enough information to learn a lot but not bore you. Worth visiting just for the Dead Sea Scrolls. Check the opening hours as was only open for 4 hours the day we were there.

If you only visit one museum in Amman, make it this one. Lovely setting and nicely designed, spacious interior with artifacts from pre-history to modern times. Included are such marvels as the first known sculpted human figures and some of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
