First the good bits. The parking area and the entrance to the park are spacious and well kept. And the contents of the park are well worth a visit, as long as you have a guidebook with you.
The bad bits? The worst one was the so-called visitor centre - a room where three women were sitting chatting. "Have you any books or even a map of the site?", I asked. "No", was the reply, accompanied by the shrug of shoulders and an irritated look. I then tried the police room next door and asked the same question. What a different response ...... they searched high and low for a map, but nothing in English. They then nipped next door to the "visitor centre" and reappeared within seconds with a map in English!! Two lessons here: (1) you WILL need a map and (2) Jordan's Department of Antiquities should employ staff who actually enjoy their job!!
Onto the museum itself. It's in two (maybe more) parts - and directions are poor. In addition, the information on the exhibits displayed is also poor. This really could be an interesting and informative site, but the concept of an archaeological park needs to be thought through and implemented better.
Enjoyed it but our guidebook was essential to interpret what was there.
