The Royal Automobile Museum sits atop the King Hussein Public Park and is home to a collection of cars and motorcycles owned by HM King Hussein, God rest his soul. However do remember this is a museum and not a car show, in other words the place has much to offer by way of history. The museum uses the cars to tell fragments of the history of modern Jordan. Some of the cars and the photos that act as their background date back to the Great Arab Revolt.
You can check out the well designed and comprehensive website for the museum for more information. Suffice to say it’s a great place if you’re looking for something to do in Amman, perhaps a little history. The ticket price is 1 Dinar.
Here are a few shots although it’s kind of difficult to take pictures inside with the darkness, spotlights and shiny cars.
