    Small but interesting
    A small museum arranged in a complex that also includes a restaurant and (I'm not sure) some accommodation, located in the middle of the wilderness. It offers interesting information about the flora, fauna, geological structure of the Dead Sea area. A separate chapter is dedicated to the dramatic drop in the water level of the Dead Sea. You need 30-40 minutes to visit it.

    Modest but not bad
    Not too bad given the unexpected location. This museum is in a touristic complex with a restaurant. It’s pretty standard but offers some informative sections. If you don’t like it just enjoy the breathtaking view over the Dead Sea, it justifies the modest entry price alone..

There was not much to see at the museum. We believe the tour guide brought us there for the restaurant. Beautiful view and lunch was good but we were pretty much stuck there and had to pay for lunch or sit in the bus. Unless you are there to eat at the restaurant it's a waste of time.

A wonderful view over the dead sea, we found the museum to be just ok. The lady giving the leacture Fatima knew her stuff & pointed out the dead sea is stinking. Then point out that a couple of Dams were not helpful in the survival of the sea + little rainfall. Worth the trip for the view.

The museum is interesting to learn about the Dead Sea - will take no more than 45min-1hr to complete but good to know about the whole area including formation and history

The restaurant is also very good and well priced. Food was tasty and healthy.

The views are incredible and worth the trip

If your looking for a fantastic restaurant with an out of the world view of the Dead Sea at sunset this is the place to go to, don't miss it. The service matches the view, excellent and the food is great.

Beautiful view like everyone said. The museum is a little outdated. Wish they had some up to date info on the state of the Dead Sea which is dire.

There are some some gift items in the side made by refugees which I wanted to buy to support the cause. No one I talked to there could sell me anything. It got a bit frustrating.

The restaurant is good. Staff was pleasant.

TIP: I came here in an Uber. It was 5JD. There’s no uber service up here. So the uber driver offered me 30JD to wait two hr for me and drive me down. I negotiated him down to 15JD. Still feel ripped off. Do negotiate with your driver for round trip BEFORE you get in the car.
