A good collection of some choice pieces from all periods of Jordan's premodern history with the greatest focus on prehistory, the Hellenistic, and Roman periods. The inscriptions are well chosen and the displays are carefully organized. The historical descriptions are helpful. Gift shop and cafe...More

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.

I'm not wild about dusty old museums but this was really interesting. Not too big, well structured, chronological exhibits. Seeing and learning about the Dead Sea Scrolls was a highlight. Highly recommended.
