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.

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
