By far my best place in Amman, if you want to feel the city then you must go to Darat al funun! It's basicly an old house that has been renewed, it has a small garden where you can just sit and enjoy the quite place while watching Ammans old mountains

Great art, view, cafe. Try the Persian tea with rose or have a Turkish coffee. Sit and listen to the muezzin call as it echoes through the hills. Breathe, relax, enjoy the peace amid the hustle and bustle of Amman.

I visited it with my Sister (she is also An Artist) I like the Art Exhibitions that are frequently exhibited in this Darat Al Funun , I likr yje Location of this Darat because itself is a Historical Building in Al--Webdeh, but surroundings of the building has been expanded.

A wonderful break from all the ancient ruins. It is a picturesque place, with several art galleries in separate buildings and views on the city. The exhibitions might not be thrilling, but the peaceful atmosphere and the lovely surroundings were definitely worth our time. A big positive surprise and a highlight of our short visit in Amman.

Darat al Funun - place of art is indeed dedicated to those who are open for any kind of art experience. Spacious exhibition rooms, affordable cafeteria, beautiful garden with an amman verview and free-to-use, well equipped art library. In the area of Darat al Funun are other interesting art spots - cafe art hubs, galleries and open creative spaces.

Have visited a number of times to view various exhibitions the most recent being early photographs from Jordan , Egypt and Palestine which were all beautifully displayed . The venue is a collection of twenties / thirties houses perched above old Amman and the views from same are truly delightful
