Beautiful little hidden spot worth visiting, either for a peek to their latest exhibit or only for an afternoon tea in their beautiful garden.

Nice complex of beautiful buildings although the expositions feel a bit too small. The place itself is an oasis in chaotic Amman. The cafeteria is nice but a little overprized.

It's a nice place to visit and enjoy the traditional architecture as well as the art and musical collections. However, it needs more attention to the gardens and it's really hot in summer, so air conditioning is required in all the rooms.
