“Very good museum”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Only a small museum but well worth a look and then stroll to the city centre for a shop. You can print your name in old languages in the museum - very groovy certificate.

“A Must See”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Not that big but world class in terms of quality of displays. Unfortunately opening hours are very restricted as it's still under construction but well worth a visit. Part of the Dead Sea Scrolls are here but there is so much more

“Jordan Archaeological Museum, Amman”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Situated in downtown Amman, this museum is an absolute gem! Exhibits range from 1,000,000 years ago through to the the Ayyubid dynasty (1200's). The exhibits end with a room dedicated to displaying portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls - a must-see. Excellently laid out, one could spend all day visiting this jam-packed, highly interesting museum. And, as the upper floor is still under construction, entry if currently free! (but not for long...)

Before setting off, check their opening times - the opening hours are a little "strange", probably due to the ongoing work on the upper floors.
