The museum has potential but there really isn't much to it. There is literally one floor of exhibit space included with the ticket price. I'd guess about 1500-2000 square feet or so....and that's being generous. I essentially paid 5 JOD to see the Dead Sea Scrolls (which were fascinating to see). However, beyond the scrolls, the exhibits are mostly geared toward kids (digital/interactive) and only offer a rudimentary introduction to select aspects of life in Jordan. There is no history section or chronological introduction to the country and/or her people. To add insult to injury, the "Innovations" exhibit on the second floor requires another 3JD to enter. I found this additional price to be absurd, considering the museums's main exhibit was so lack luster. According to online accounts the museum opened in 2014. Unfortunately, I'm not certain where all the money went as, four years post opening, the museum does not present as ready for the public. This visit was one of my more disappointing experiences in Amman. Maybe worthwhile if you have kids but the museum has a long way to go in order to appeal to serious historians/museum buffs.
Really cool I didn't think Jordan had such cool history for a dinar you can learn so much very nice place to go on a school trip or just alone my only problem is that it closes very early. Other than that go.
It's great for a casual family visit with curious kids. The upper floor hosts the Inventions exhibition and it's perfect for kids as well.
NOT worth visiting. They charge 5 JOD for foreigners to enter the museum. You get to see one small floor of various things. Most of what you see is not historical and does not address the Jordanian history in any way whatsoever. The second floor of the museum is another exhibit that costs 3 more JOD to enter. Ridiculous considering how little you get to see with your first 5. Do NOT bother going here, it is a waste of your time/money.
The exbition is very explanatory about some of the achievements and constrains/struggles of the country., specially the scarcity of water. Also loved the exbition 1001 inventions! In the "occidental culture " we often "forgot" about the contributions of the arab world ...this exposition highlights some of the main contributors for the development of nowadays world mentioning the impotant role of women!
The main exhibit was closed, but still well worth 5 JOD. 9000 year old statues, Dead Sea scrolls and a bunch of fun facts to make more out of your trip. I recommend going early on so you can appreciate the knowledge while here
The Jordan Museum is located in Ras Al-Ein district of Amman, Jordan. Built in 2014, the museum is the largest museum in Jordan and hosts the country's most important archaeological findings. The museum presents artifacts from various prehistoric archaeological sites in Jordan
Visited when most exhibitions were closed, but even that it was a great experience. Seeing the world's oldest sculptures and the only dead sea scrolls in metal was amazing. A must see museum!
Some interesting stuff. Quite a bit of the museum was closed for renovation... Not much left. You can see some of the dead sea scrolls.
Note - most of the museum is not open! Two modern children's displays have some interesting content.. But wait for it to re-open.
Very, very small number of exhibits. Dead sea Scrolls is one prized item. Very aesthetically exhibited. Too costly. No value for money for tourists. No need to visit this at 5 JD/7 USD.
Detailed and innovative exhibits can be found here. You can understand the geographical situation that Jordan is facing and their smart solutions. BUT a bit overpriced, it costs 5JD per visitor even the main exhibition is under renovation and it is a small-scale exhibition. The other ongoing exhibition costs another 3JD though the area of exhibition seems even smaller.
I found the place very inviting and small but full of wonderful history.takes about 1 hour to go threw not all exits were open but still a comprehensive collection
A very interesting museum but it closed shortly after it was open for renovation as they say though it didn't need any renovation in the first place. It opens short hours during the day and closes two days a week
We stopped by on a whim because we were in the neighborhood, and I’m so glad we did! Small but nice exhibits downstairs. Be sure to go upstairs to check out the 1001 inventions. It’s a little hidden because you go into a little theatre and then from there you’re enter a min-science museum. Really nicely done - Our 7 year old had a blast!
One of the best places to visit if you're trying to know more about Jordan and it's civilizations through the years. Amazing staff, and the activities they conduct are awesome! A place where you can go with your friends or your family .
Main exhibition closed. Meanwhile, Very nice exposition about inventions (water, communications, energy, food) in Jordan. Very surprising exposition on the second floor about the 1001 inventions. It might be a bit awkward, but you should not miss it ! A lot of fun and laughing.
