The museum was mostly closed so we saw few objects. The Dead Sea scrolls were available so we were not disappointed. There was a temporary exhibit on the second floor. When we were entering, we were stop and told it required another ticket. We did...More

My husband and I wanted to see the 1001 inventions and after visiting the downstairs museum headed upstairs. However, they did not allow us to go upstairs as it was one minute after 4pm and the museum actually closes at 5 pm. After 4, you...More

Unfortunately the Museum is currently under renovation so only part of the ground floor is opened (and the price of the ticket is not reduced!) However, there is already plenty of amazing artefacts to see and plenty to learn about Jordan's history.

A reasonably new museum this has a number of interactive exhibits. It gives a good overview of the history and the current situation of modern Jordan. It is certainly worth visiting before visiting other sights in Jordan.

There was only a small exhibition on show the day I went here - but it has some interesting facts about Jordanian life - eg the very small amount of water used in comparison to other areas. There are some wonderful exhibits and promises of...More

Well, other than the Dead Sea scrolls this museum has nothing to offer.The tickets are not very cheap and so I think for tourists this place is a waste of money and time!!
