Interesting place across different buildings and terraces. Few visitors which was good for lingering visit. Gardens well maintained and lovely to sit in courtyard for drinks. Found the video of the Palestine farm which was reduced over the years by the Israeli government quite shocking and destructive. Leaving the family in disarray, all the time maintaining their dignity and bits... More

Darat al Funun is a small museum that is focused on Arab contemporary art and is situated in a former residential housing compound in Jebel al Luweibdeh. It also contains a very nice shaded garden with a fountain and a minimalist cafe. It's great to visit anytime if you just want to chill out and drink coffee, but if you... More

If you have walked for miles and miles sipping tea here smelling the flowers and enjoying the little fountains is define. We didn't see a lot of the Art but we surely enjoyed the area a lot.

Very hard to find! This was on our to-do list, with another one close by apparently undergoing renovations. Halfway down a long, steep flight of stairs an open door in the wall led into a shady space with some tables - no sign at the door, no-one to answer our queries. A children's creative workshop was taking place, so we... More

This place contains contemporary Jordanian/Palestine art. Has small but decent collection. The views of the city from its small roman gardens with mini fountains is amazing. Good place to visit in the afternoon, sip tea and read a book. Seems that it is frequented by expats a lot.

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.
