Archeological Museum, Amman: 12 reviews and 35 photos
Though only small, the Archaeological museum on the Amman's citadel contains a number of quite unique and important finds dating from pre-history through to Islamic times.
Among the really important artifacts are items from Teleilat Ghassul, a Chalcolithic site in the Jordan Valley that was one of the very first towns in the region including strange humanoid terracotta coffins and a frescoed wall.
Iron Age pottery, Greek coins, Roman glass and Mameluke grenades - evidence of the tide of history that has washed over this place. It really is worth an hour or so of your time.
The museum opens from 1000 -1330 and 1500-1800
Address: Jebel al Qala'a
