Not much for the "art" part, but it has a great atmosphere and cozy garden with a nostalgic grandma vibes. Also bonus points cus its filled with cats.

Relaxed art centre and pleasant cafe, ideal for relaxing for a few hours or just to meet and chat or take a coffee. The coconut pie cake thing is recommended

Very small gallery walking distance from Rainbow St (up hills). Interesting old maps and a relaxing place to visit. Takes about 45 mins. Not a must see place.

Excellent small museum in lovely surroundings in an old part of Amman, Weibdeh. Small coffee shop and intimate atmosphere.

I really enjoyed this place and was not expecting it to be so big! I got lost a few times and someone was able to help me once, but I fear I've missed some of it! From what I did see, the art was brilliant and I learnt a lot! The gardens were beautiful and I genuinely enjoyed it.

I don’t consider this a must see sight but I enjoyed it. They had a nice variety of art and also provided a good history of the buildings and their renovation.

It’s not the most organized place. There was a guy who pointed me to the entry after my first attempt failed but there wasn’t anyone there who could answer questions. I would like to have seen more of the surrounding buildings but couldn’t figure out if it was possible or how to do it.

No complaints about the price. It’s free.

A quiet series of spaces, views and restored buildings which provide views over Amman and an insight into the history of the city. Small art exhibitions and an archaeological site means that it is a quiet and satisfying diversion from the more intense historical sites - I visited later one afternoon. Beautiful tiled floors, high ceilings and large windows make for beautifully attractive ex-homes and good spaces for modern art.

A stunning old house and archaeological ruins that's a tranquil oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Amman city. It has a fascinating history (as whoever is on the desk as you enter) and is now dedicated to showing contemporary Arab artists. Interesting and challenging work. Go to the cafe and try the absolutely delicious fresh strawberry juice in the beautiful garden

I appreciated the reviewer who said go to the Luzmila Hospital, go down the hill and turn right. That was helpful! On the left is a stairway. The stairway cuts through the property, with the cafe on the right. I got there at 10 am and the building were all still closed. I did like the garden, the fountains, and especially the ruins of St. George’s Church.

Well this place has lots of stories and one of the oldest houses in Amman. I grew up in this house, as it used to be my aunt's house before they decided to sell it to shoman. I am happy that they have preserved it well and made it an art gallery, and an icon where a lot of people visit. It's a place everyone must visit for the amazing projects they have and the beautiful art they exhibit.

هذا المكان لديه الكثير من القصص وهو من أقدم المنازل في عمان. نشأت في هذا المنزل بحيث كانت تسكن به عمتي وزوجها واولادها قبل أن يقرروا بيع المنزل لعائلة شومان. أنا سعيد للحفاظ على هذا المنزل وتاريخه و لتحويله إلى معرض للفنون وأيقونة في عمان ليستمتع الناس في زيارته. مكان يجب كل شخص أن يزوره للأعمال الجميلة المعروضة
