  • Jordan museum is a great experience and a must do when visiting Amman. They have many exhibits dating back thousands of years, including the original dead sea scrolls! When we went they also had a great I reactive exhibit upstairs for kids to enjoy. Entry price was quite reasonable too.
  • Wonderfully designed new building with an excellent selection of items important to Jordan. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Dead Sea Scrolls, both the leather ones and the lesser known copper ones. There is a large number of artifacts found during archeological digs
