  • Although it is a relatively small place, it still has its charms and I never miss out on visiting it when I'm in Amman  more »
  • Small but interesting collection, relatively well arranged and classified in a very small space. There were pieces that were lost for lack of "breath". As it is within the Citadel's space it is worth entering.
