This museum is a real treasure for Jordan. It is modern and magnificent. Like most archaeological museums it shows the artefacts form the country across the Millenia (Jordan goes back a long way). The exhibits have Arabic and English signage so English speakers can read everything. The exhibits are wonderful and in the various sections are explanations of all the... More

This museum provides a great overview of the breadth and depth of history in the area. It is on the small side but that allowed me to enjoy the full museum and retain the information. It is well organized and the docents are helpful. Do check the hours as it closed early the day I was there.

The largest museum in Jordan with important archaeological findings on display; of particular interest are the findings of the Nabatean civilization. There is a section in the museum where you could type your name into a computer, and it gives you a free printed copy of how your name would be written in 5 different languages.

The antiquities on display in this museum give you a real sense of the history of Jordan dating back to prehistoric times to the present. It also has an excellent section on the development of the Arabic language, which derived from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs according to the museum. Without wanting to sound condescending, as a foreigner who speaks English, the... More

Very interesting place, everything set out well. We particularly liked its information on the Nabatean civilisation and their water courses, having been to Petra. There are English captions. Funnily enough, the only thing I was underwhelmed by was the Dead Sea Scrolls, the reason I'd wanted to visit in the first place. I was a bit "so what?" when I... More

The museum gives a splendid overview about Jordan in all ages and ceturies. It is interesting and a good addition to the Citadel museum because it is well organized and more didactically inspired.

The museum is still in (seemingly perpetual) soft opening, I will review it again when it officially starts working full time. I do believe i will give it a full 5 stars when it does. The Good: +With every visit I enjoyed it more, the accessible areas are very educational and cover the wide range of archaeological sites and history... More

Happily I visited on the way home from my trip and it put a lot of the paced I visited into context. Also very well structured. You could be forgiven for thinking when you walk in "oh god. .. pottery " but they do a really good job of showing the development of civilization through the artefacts they jabbed found... More

I finally managed to visit this museum as it has tough opening hours. It is open only between 10 am and 2 pm and it everyday if I remember correctly. So, first do check they are open before you head there. They are located near Hussein Cultural Center in downtown. Museum is very nicely and modernly designed and staff are... More
