Umm Qais Museum reviews
Less know than Petra and Jerash, Umm Qais is a hidden germ of history and ancient civilizations. The drive to Umm Qais is awesome and takes you to places you never imagined. The ruins are impressive..... more »
Called Gadara in the Greek and roman times the present day ruins of Umm Qais are worth a visit, if only for the views. The ruins are famous for the views of the Sea of Galilee & Golan Heights... more »
Nice piece of history, or what is left of it, since many houses have been build on the site using the stones from the old buildings. But different from the other places in Jordan, because of the stone used to build.
A very small museum - less than 15 minutes to see everything in it - displaying things recovered from the Umm Qais site. When we were there, many of the displays were empty and the whole place was disorderly. Just take a stroll through it while exiting the Umm Qais site.
