Museums

Jordan is a land steeped in history. It has been home to some of Humankind's earliest settlements and villages; harboring hidden relics from the world's great civilizations. 

On the basis of that rich history, many museums were established throughout Jordan to preserve this great history.
Museums established to spread awareness of civilizations and cultures and highlight the cultural heritage of the Kingdom. Jordanian museums have established plans and programs to achieve these goals to attract investments that enhance the gross national income and to highlight the bright civilized image of Jordan.


Museums are the key to the societal culture of every country in the world, and the mirror that reflects the cultural and civilizational identity and the extent of interest in it, as a place where those historical symbols are preserved that enrich tourism both internal and external.

It is also considered one of the most prominent centers for reviving human living memory, as it is the link between it and the ancient tradition and originality.

The role of museums is no longer limited to displaying artifacts and indicating the history to which they belong, but rather they work in an integrated manner with organized and studied plans, which contributes to the revitalization of cultural memory, as museums are an essential component of the cultural identity of the community.

In celebration of World Museum Day, the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities will be displaying artifacts in museums across the country which are exhibited for the first time.
