Presenting Jordanian history through the lens of its vehicles, the gallery displays Cadillacs, Buicks, Harley-Davidsons, and replicas of some of the world's first car models.

  • Opportunity to see a lot of rare cars and motorbikes and to learn more about history of Royal Jordan family. Definitely worth to visit. Outside the museum you can see the original space vehicle used in movie The Martian with Matt Damon.
  • An interesting collection of cars to see here. Some really nice classics and some rare models combined. The museum is not too big making this visit a good early afternoon thingy before dinner for example.
