I was on a business trip to Jordan and decided to pay a visit to the museum before lunch. Empty halls so we could walk freely and go back and forth to the cars we like. The entrance is cheap and the place is very clean and tidy. The display is mind blowing and you get a feeling they love... More

The Royal Automobile Museum was much larger than I expected - it had many of the cars used by the royal family of Jordan on display in great condition. Even though I am not very interested in cars, I thought the museum was definitely worth a visit as there are many different types of cars from different periods of time.... More

Nice cars (owned by the late king). I liked it, but some other members of the group felt it a bit boring. So, in the automobile museum you see mostly cars:). Be prepared for that.

The late King Hussein is highly regarded in Jordan. But there is something shocking that an absolute monarch can justify owning this quantity of vehicles. And while it is interesting to see how cars have changed over the decades, it is difficult to enjoy a guilkt free visit when you see how hard his people are having to work to... More

The museum is ridiculous. I didn't realise how much I could enjoy a car museum until I went here. The previous king of Jordan had a real love for cars and motorcycles so it's basically a museum of incredible cars in top condition. It's well set up as each car has a small description on the car / motorcycle itself... More

It's one of the places one must visit when in Amman. A collection of automobiles and motorcycles belonging to the Amman royalty is on display here. The roadsters are used as conduits to tell the history of the Hashemite dynasty of Jordan. They plied the ancient caravan routes, taking the reigning kings to the interiors to keep in touch with...
