if you like cars, this one is great. £4 entry and amazing cars. A bit off the beaten track, in a park, so a cab ride, but worth the trip

Great car and motorcycle collection. The museum is well displayed and even has some videos and information explaining how the kings of Jordan used the cars and for which occasions. Entrance fee for Jordanians 1JD and other nationalities 3JD. Great museum but far from most hotels and attractions...no local transportation so ask your taxi driver to stay and wait for... More

You get a chance to have a photograph with all your favorite cars. The vintage car collection is amazing plus the race cars and bikes rule the museum.

This really is the history of the motor vehicle from its start to the current day; particularly the luxury part of the market. However the desert vehicles are also interesting and the 'fun'vehicles too. Motor cycles galore! The information boards are good and, if you have difficulty with reading in reduced lighting, an audio guide is available. For those interested... More

We took our 3 kids and went for an afternoon last week. We were there about 2 hours. Some of us rented the audible machines which gave more information about the history of the cars and the country. The day we went it was nearly empty which was nice. It's amazing to see the range of vehicles and all the... More

If you do love cars this is a must. Here you find many classic cars as well as very modern cars. They also have some very special edition cars where there are only very few in existence. All these cars belong to the royal family and they are in mint condition. Yes and a few bikes are also on show.... More

It's a bit of a way out, but what a lovely museum (JD3 entry fee, at time of writing). You don't have to be a bike or car lover to appreciate it. It appears that all the vehicles are in good condition–all very clean and polished– and there is a wide range of cars and bikes. Details and explanation of... More

Not only cars but motorcycles are displayed. Also provides a history of Jordan and its rulers. Recommend the independent audio guide feature as it provides good information about the various exhibits.
