Nice!

Art has the benefit to refresh your mind, so I can say that I felt more relaxed after I spent an hour here. They have a nice library with many interesting books.

No taxi driver knew the National Gallery of Contemporary Art or of Fine Arts! It was wonderful to find and to visit the beautifully set up galleries, with modern use of heritage buildings, and interesting contemporary works, some abstract others not, by Middle-Eastern or Asian artists. Admittedly there is little information about the artists. However, it was a real pleasure... More

The gallery offered a pleasant atmosphere to take in the art -- it's modern and well-lit and comfortable. The current exhibit was fine though we had hoped to see more important works. It would help quite a lot if there were bios of the artists and more information about each work posted on the wall or nearby. As frequent art... More

Good selection of art pieces and good exchange programme with other international galleries. It's a fine place to explore Arab artists works.

Today we went rather quickly through one of the two buildings of the museum. And i will definitely come back soon to spend some time in the garden and the second building.

It had two floors of exhibits, and one floor was not set up yet. There was paintings on display from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, and other Arab nations. If you stay at the Le Meridien Amman, a free pass will be available in your welcome package in your room.

The collection of paintings and sculptures is housed in two buildings separated by beautiful gardens which also display larger sculptures. National Gallery mainly displays contemporary art. Collection includes many works from Jordan, wider Middle East as well as Africa. I loved the collection. For any true art lover this is a must. There is a small entrance fee 5 JD... More
