Love it! Well displayed and presented , despite it didn't have an extensive collection! Love also the little cosy coffee with an amazing top view Amman! The mini-shop is also really nice with handcraft-souvenirs!

2 buildings and the public park between them. Main building is mostly contemporary art, some of it quite cool. Other building seems to be for exhibitions. €5 entrance fee not covered by Jordan pass makes it expensive. Cafe space is expensive but a bit cool.

Worth a visit if you are into contemporary art. The artworks are mainly from artist from Jordan and around. Anyhow, there weren't too many artworks I enjoyed in particular. Moreover, the whole arrangement lacks some "love", especially I was confused by one floor that had lights switched off so you could not see the artworks too well. Entrance fee is 5 JD.

Excellent and lovely Art Gallery, beautiful artwork and the staff is very helpful. The garden between the two buildings belongs also to the National Gallery of Fine Arts. I recommend a visit

I love how active they are with exhibitions and how some of the art keeps changing, so you can visit over and over but never get bored. It also spreads art culture in Jordan, which our society desperately needs.

This small but impressive gallery is a wonderful place to gain an appreciation of contemporary Jordanian painting, sculpture and pottery. The attractive space highlights contemporary art from around the Middle East and the wider Muslim world. Temporary exhibitions here are of high quality and serve as a valuable introduction (or refresher) to the world of Islamic art. The gallery is signposted from Suleiman Al Nabulsi St, opposite the King Abdullah Mosque.

Walked in, no one around, some of the lights out so not much viewing, few nice pieces, on the way out noticed an electrician working on the lights. Park outside is part of the display for larger items.
