National Archaeological Museum Reviews
Although it is a relatively small place, it still has its charms and I never miss out on visiting it when I'm in Amman more »
Colecção pequena, mas interessante, relativamente bem arrumada e classificada num espaço bastante pequeno. Havia peças que se perdiam por falta de "respiração". Como fica dentro do espaço da Cidadela ... more »Small but interesting collection, relatively well arranged and classified in a very small space. There were pieces that were lost for lack of "breath". As it is within the Citadel's space it is worth entering.
