We found this place by accident, having seen some people walking up a steep hill and towards an arty district in Amman. We walked in, for free, and started wandering down the various galleries. The setting is amongst some beautiful green trees and gardens, with some ancient ruins scattered amongst some of the artwork in the gardens too. There is... More

We looked out this place on our last afternoon, and we so glad we didn't miss out. Very interesting displays at this time. Also a very attractive setting in the city.

This should be a must visit for every traveller going to Amman. In the middle of a quaint neighbourhood, is this stunning art complex with beautifully preserved ruins and a variety of exhibition. Fantastic views too.

It says on their website they are open until 7pm. We arrived at 5:40pm. The guy working there also told us they are open until 7pm. But by 6:10pm, 3 of the 6 exhibit buildings were being closed and then at 6:15pm they literally turned off the lights on us. We were forced out by 6:17pm. We were quite disappointed.... More

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.
