Car lovers must see this museum. Well organized, well restored vehicles, expect to see the unexpected of collector cars and motorcycles. Who knew?

This museum is amazing, the range of vintage cars to top of the range modern is impressive. Worth a visit by any car lover. They also have a headset that explains the role of some of the cars on the way round. A great insight into the King's top hobby

If there was ever a fan of antique and luxurious cars it definitely was King Hussein of Jordan! I visited this museum and though I am not a huge fan of automobiles or motorbikes, I left there impressed! His collection is to say the least extravagant... There are over 70 antique cars and motorcycles on display and the walk through... More

Many cool older cars, motorcycles and trucks. Our family (kids 5 and 7) were not extremely thrilled, but enjoyed it. Much more for the car enthusiast but neat for all. Not a must see, but is next to the Children's Museum, so easy to stop by and see if you are there.

Fantastic displays and information on vintage automobiles and motorcycles associated with the royal family. The museum itself is meticulously maintained, the dioramas highly detailed and realistic, and the vehicles are kept immaculate and in running condition. This should be on the visit list for anyone in Amman.

Defiantly one of the best museums I've been to ever. Brilliant idea to show Jordan's history through the cars of the king.

Great collection of very interesting automobiles and motorcycles that were owned (many were given) to the Jordanian Royal Family. Great family photos of how the automobiles were used. Many decades covered in this exhibit and it includes race cars, motorcycles, limousines and personal cars. It provides a good glimpse into the Royal Family and their history. If you are a... More

This was well worth the time even if you're not a car buff. It's a short taxi ride and worth negotiating to keep your taxi there while you visit (you'll need about an hour if you really take your time). It's a fascinating way to learn about just how wealthy the royals were and to learn something about the development... More
