We visited after Mt Nebo. The museum had a lot of exhibits depicting numerous biblical scenes. The gift shop was quite good and we bought several souvenirs for our Jordan trip there.

If you are planning to visit Madaba, then this place should be on your list. With an entrance fees of JOD 2.0, you'll have the opportunity to explore the history of Jordan through incarnates made from wax. This place is recommended for kids as well.

The 'museum' really isn't one. There are scenes from history poorly recreated. It was a complete disappointment. The real goal of this location is to show you hand crafted items in their shops. These were lovely but overpriced and poorly packaged for shipping internationally.

It is worth a visit. A quick overview of the history of humanity, which summarizes very well how many things happened nearby. The author is a genius. Soon the largest mosaic in the world will be displayed thanks to him. Mabruk.
