A very nice and interesting museum which I really can recommend you to see. Lots of history for most people even if you don't know so much about this area of the world

To be honest there's not much to see here. There is a room with the dead sea scrolls and that is cool but I wouldn't spend too much time inside. It is rather small and the day we went it was packed with people. If you don't make it, it's not the end of the world.

The Museum is full of exciting historical info. Organized and a lot of pieces from several civilizations lived in Jordan. It was a great experience I didn't expect that and for sure worth visiting

The museum is in downtown Amman. The entry fee is not included in the Jordan Pass. The museum provides a historical tour of Jordan and contains some Dead Sea scrolls which is the highlight. We went through the museum in about 1/12 hours. Enjoyed the visit.

Amman is a very nice city to visit. Lots of good restaurants friendly people and lots of close by attractions. Try to get to Jerash and Petra. Downtown Amman has lots of Roman ruins and history.

I really only came here for the dead sea scrolls. It is very special to see them for real! The rest is for those who are really into the history of Jordan.

The dead sea scrolls was really interesting for me. The modern architecture of the place gives the right vibe. The courtyard was wide and well maintained. I hope they have another exhibit next time I visit the place.
