This museum, which is right off the Roman Theatre, is small but satisfying. It has a great range of ethnographic materials-- outfits and jewelry from various tribes in the region of Jordan, some still thriving and some of the past. The explanations on the labels are good, and you can get even more information if you speak some Arabic and talk to the friendly museum guard. The objects here are a lot more charismatic than the ones in the National Archaeological Museum on the citadel, and they're organized much better. Worth a visit, especially since it's a two-fer with the theatre!
