  • The exhibition is divided by 3 spaces being one of them exterior, garden, with a small collection of sculptures. One of the other spaces was closed for installation of a temporary exhibit. Despite the abandoned garden air and the poor lighting of the building's collection that was working, I enjoyed watching. The collection is composed by artists from the Near East: Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Turkey... The café was closed and the store had interesting suggestions and some originality.

  • Jordan I expected it to be the National Gallery of Art, but there were some wonderful paintings and sculptures, but I didn't know which one was the highlight. Rather, the café on the top floor has a good view, coffee and cakes are delicious, and it is recommended.

  • The cafe is super great. Smoke-free and food options are also unique. Highly recommended for a day to work outside office.
  • It’s one of my favorite places in Amman. With two buildings and many art pieces to enjoy. It feels like the suitable place to fill your soul with art and beauty. I have to go there every once and while and have my dose of wonders, though sadly the art pieces doesn’t change very often but it’s my peaceful, heart warming and happy place.
