    Irresistible to anyone interested in armored warfare
    The tank dominates the modern battlefield. The display of tanks here is fascinating. If you have never seen a real Soviet T-34 tank, this is your chance. The tanks range from ancient to modern, this museum is irresistible to anyone who is interested in armored warfare.

    Impressive tank museum.
    This enormous tank museum is world class and really represents much of the local tank history as well as from wider abroad. If visiting Amman, well worth a visit.. It may have the only israeli tank outside israel

    Tanks rule the battlefield
    Tanks rule the battlefield, but how often do we see them close up? Here we can see classic tanks such as the Russian T34, which ruled the Eastern Front in World War II. The Sherman, the America Main Battle Tank, is a marvel of engineering. All sorts of tanks are here, they provide an insight into armored warfare. Any military enthusiast could spend two or three hours viewing.

Truly surprised by this museum! It is a world class tank museum sitting in downtown Amman. If you have even a glancing interest in tanks and/or armoured vehicles you will not regret making the effort to check out this museum. The variety of the collection is impressive, the displays are exceptionally well done and the restorations are first class.
Kudos to the Jordanians for having the vision and succeeding!
Regrettably, Canada's best efforts in this field would not approach half of what Jordan has achieved with this museum (sorry Canadian War Museum).

The Royal Tank Museum holds one of the world's largest collections of tanks, antitank weapons and self-propelled guns, dating back to the Mark 1, the first ever British tank. The Museum holds classic tanks such as the formidable Russian T34, the American Sherman and the Daimler Dingo scout car. It's a marvelous display of these legendary armored vehicles. By the way, don't go on Tuesday, it's shut.

Much better than expected. This tank museum must be one of the best in the world. So many tanks, trucks, personnel carriers, jeeps and motorbikes it's unbelievable! Cost just 5JD for a tourist and is well worth the money.
The building architecture is fantastic and perfect for a tank museum.
Some very nice dioramas, lots of info and tanks from al around the world.
Highly recommended, and even better than the automobile museum.

The most successful museum in Amman. New, big, with special and modern architecture, well organized. You can see a lot of tanks here, starting with some of the first models and ending with some modern ones. There are also two tanks cut in half, to give you an idea of what the interior looks like. All exhibits have explanations in English.
Located in an area far from the old town and other tourist attractions.
I have visited almost all of Europe and I have not seen a similar museum!

The museum had lots of info and signage in Arabic and English and was fairly quiet on a weekday afternoon. The facility is well maintained and worth a stop if tanks and history are of interest. The building is well air conditioned so its a a good afternoon activity to get out of the sun as well and lots of on site parking
