Discover the country’s rich history and heritage at The Jordan Museum, which boasts an extensive collection of artifacts and relics. The spacious building was completed in 2014, replacing the old archaeological museum. As you wander the galleries, you can admire chronologically sorted displays from Jordan’s past, from bones of animals more than a million years old, to exhibits on the country’s history in the last few centuries. See some of the oldest statues in the world, dating back more than 9,000 years, and admire one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Make The Jordan Museum a centerpiece of your Amman vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Amman trip itinerary planning site.

  • The Jordan museum is mostly about the history of Jordan. The exhibits are very well done however I think for most people most of the exhibits aren’t very interesting. There are however two exhibits that I did think were interesting. First is the Dead Sea scrolls and you can even see Dead Sea scroll fragments. However you are not allowed to take pictures. Second is the inventions exhibition
  • Important museum exhibiting many various artefacts from different periods. They have some of the Dead Sea Scrolls (no photos)! And a 3,699 year old wall painting. It’s more high tech than the Archaeological Museum but sparsely filled. If they out the two museums together it would be better. This one is a bit mishmash. Still, an excellent museum
