Interesting, good experience, but not as big as Jerash.
You will get good view on the old city from here.
Unfortunately we didn't have seen the Dead Sea scrolls, in Archeological museum cos they were gone.

If in Amman go and have a look. You will learn a bit about Jordan history. Nice views of the city. But, there are much more interesting thing to see in Jordan, Jerash, Um Qais, Petra, Dead Sea, etc

Interesting site to visit in the city. Not a great deal to see, but great views. We were there during one of the call to prayer, it was really cool to stand in the middle of the city and hear the prayers as they are simo cast all around you. Walk to the Amphitheater and down town shopping from there.

This place is well worth a visit, plan on spending a few hours here as there is alot to see, there are an amazing array of ruins and buildings, and the views of Amman are worth the entry price alone which was very cheap, when you have finished there are a set of steps at the end of the road, which lead down to the ampitheatre site.
