Small museum included in the price of the ticket for the amphitheatre. Takes only about 10 or 15 minutes to see. If it was a standalone venue it wouldn't be worth viewing.

Viewing time is short and sweet. Interesting to see different culture and history of Jordan through dress, cooking, art and craftsmanship.

This museum is included in your ticket for the Roman Theatre so visit it while you are there. It's small and not much special, though still worth a short visit to walk around and see some typical Jordanian clothing, accessories and utensils. The museum should be updated with some more information boards.

A nice way to have an idea of how are the Jordan traditions nowadays and in the past. It's a great contrast with our culture.

The admission of this museum is included in the price for the Roman amphitheater. It is small, but has a lot of clothing from history. I would assume that children would find it boring, but since you are already there...why not.

It is a nice museum that is located next to the Roman Amphitheater. It has a small collection of the traditional (folklore) clothes of the Jordanian, Palestinian, and Circassians.
