    The king's collection is beautiful with some very very rare vehicles in his collection, so worth the trip

    my husband runs a history museum in the US - so we visit history museums everywhere. This is an amazing overview of the long history of the region, with great artifacts, maps, etc.

    The museum has a great collection of tanks, with information about the models and their usage/production/origin. It was bigger than we thought and definitely nice.
    The upstairs was closed when we visited.

    This is for sure one of the highlights in a visit of Amman in order to understand properly the ancient history of this amazing city.
    Located inside the Citadel and with a free entry, it's worth a visit

    My three year old had a blast playing at all the learning activities. The staff was stationed around to keep things clean and sanitized. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

    Parking stinks, but that’s most places on the island.

    Great works and nice location! The art pieces were lovely, too but I found a free and more authentic Jordanian art gallery just down the corner! It's called the AVG gallery so if you're in the area, definitely check it out!

    This was quite an interesting museum inside the grounds of the amphitheater. There are two levels and each show the local Jordanians or bedouins at work in their houses or their businesses.

    This memorial/museum is worth a visit if you have an interest in military history or the like. The building and its surrounds are in perfect condition and one of the few places I visited in Jordan where there was absolutely not rubbish. The memorial is surrounded on three sides by what appear to be water features (luckily without water), which in a country with so little water seems like a strange design for such a monument. Inside the memorial is the tomb of the unknown story and a short history of Jordan’s military adventures, starting with the Arab Uprising in 1916 and ending with detail about the country’s UN peacekeeping activities. I arrived on the hour just in time to see the changing of the guard. Not as impressive as some I have seen but still of interest.

    Note, you may be asked on entering the museum for identification. It is unclear why this is needed, my Australian drivers licenced sufficed.

    The place is artistic, the art is beautiful, the view is nice of amman old city. I love the section of artistic fashion and home decoration where it is reasonably priced. Worth a visit for art collectors.

    Two sisters make the most beautiful dresses and jackets by hand and needle.

    Pandazilla is the first and only street art shop in Amman. The two owners of the shop are visionaries who want to spread their love for street art and put their heart and soul into their work and the shop😊 They support local artist and also do murals and other projects. If you’re in a Amman, you MUST check it out- they’ll welcome you with open arms!
