“The attraction does not lie so much in the car itself. Rather, in the man who chose it and drove it, in the events it witnessed and the places it was steered towards.” These lines are what aptly define the significance of Royal Automobile Museum in Amman.
The museum was set up under orders from His Majesty King Abdullah II, as a tribute to his father late King Hussein who was very fond of cars. His love for automobiles was not limited to the performance and looks, rather he was always keen about knowing its technical and design traits as well. It must be noted that Royal Automobile Museum is not a car exhibition but holds immense value from the history standpoint.
Starting from a replica of the world’s first car, developed by Karl Benz to the Porsche Carrera GT built in 2005, the museum has almost every era of automobiles stored in it. It holds about 60 classic cars and 50 motorbikes that comprised Kind Hussein’s private collection. You will find every known name like Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and Mercedes.
