The Jordan Museum reviews
I walked here to discover more of Jordon history. Very disappointed to find it is closed on Tuesdays. My old guide book said it was open but clearly wrong. Why close all day in the middle of the week more »
Should everyone see this amazing traditional place and was amazing tour I really love it 😀 😍 💕 Thank you more »
Jordan museum is a great experience and a must do when visiting Amman. They have many exhibits dating back thousands of years, including the original dead sea scrolls! When we went they also had a great I reactive exhibit upstairs for kids to enjoy. Entry price was quite reasonable too.
Wonderfully designed new building with an excellent selection of items important to Jordan. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Dead Sea Scrolls, both the leather ones and the lesser known copper ones. There is a large number of artifacts found during archeological digs
